Fire brings rain in a natural cycle and new growth rises from the ashes in the following months. Into the wind, the fire’s path can be tracked; the turns and banks, the burned bark crusting to charcoal scales on the approach side, the ley-side untouched, as the consuming force ran through. High in the hills, looking down, the fire’s path made random patterns that interlaced like tattoos on the undulating surface: unburnt areas were edged crisply with sculpted webs of black spiralling, scrolling paths, tracking where the fire raced through, then guttered and revived, before spinning off in new directions.
