Refuge From The Fire

Comments by Robert Cohen - 10 Oct 2000

Between A Fire And a Hard Place

What a magnificent photograph.

A wall of flame generates enormous heat. The fire takes oxygen from the air, and represents total destruction of home and life to the inhabitants of the forest.

The animals are disoriented. Momentarily stunned. There, blocking their escape route is the deadliest of enemies. Man. The photographer holds the tool of his trade and immortalizes nature's deadliest scene.

His intentions are peaceful, but how are the animals to know? To their backs is a forest-eating creature whose appetite cannot be sated. In their path is the illogical creature who randomly destroys and disobeys nature's laws. A decision to be made, and a confusion, frozen in the photographer's lens for just one moment in time.
