Recently we covered the scale of the Australian bushfires from the air.

Today I wanted to show you some before and after images of the Australian bushfires from the ground.

Having lived in Australia for 7 years I feel despondent when I see the devastation these fires have caused.

But I don’t think you must have lived there to be shocked by these images.
