Dianne Thompson has produced a book of extraordinary images.
Her photographs are more than a historical record. They are a reflection on how she saw the effects of the bushfires in 2003, and show the extent and intensity of the fires and the land's so far partial recovery.
In the weeks that followed after the fire took its main run, Dianne was able to visit some of the parks and reserves that had been consumed by the flames. The losses were frightening, but there were some signs of hope. Even in the worst of it there was a strange beauty she could not ignore.
These are her photos of that personal journey of healing and recovery.
