A patch of scorched earth at Princess Point, Hamilton ON, after a prescribed controlled burn conducted for the Royal Botanical Gardens. The annual fire helps native plant life gain a foothold over invasive species, fire being a natural part of the ecosystem that now needs human intervention to strike the match of regeneration.

I found it strangely beautiful, the scent of the old fire and the way the earth looked alive in a new way.
