Burning hills

I wrote about the fires that were devastating the hills around Fondi earlier this summer. You can find what I said here. This photograph was taken a couple of weeks after that, towards the end of July, as we were walking towards our house one night, it must have been around two o’clock. The flames effectively frame the hill, which reaches almost 500 metres above sea level. We phoned the emergency services and a harried fireman said they were putting out fires all along the coast and they’d do their best. This is what the hill looks like now.
