Photographer's Note

Extensive forest fires have affected the region around Pampilhosa da Serra in 2005. It is incredible to travel through eucalyptus forests for kilometers... seeing only fire, ashes and desolation.
Most houses and villages preserved from fire now appear as a green oasis in the middle of black hills.

Smoke in this case is due to evaporating rain... not to fire ;-)
