So very sad. A sorry scary sight.
Wonderful pics of a dangerous situation
Thank you very much… though I wasn’t aiming at beautiful picks… 🙏
Always welcome my friend
The poor animals.
It’s so wrong that humans have created the conditions for all to suffer.
I wish I could save the animals.
Is Athens okay?
Very wrong, especially when it’s intentional!
Fortunately there are many people here who volunteer and help any way they can.
Athens is fine but other places are burning… as it happens every single year ever since I was born! …and every time governments talk about maximum penalties and yet…
Yes lots of fires with the heat.. as everywhere is tinder dry… Dramatic photos of your beloved spot where the Sun rises Marina..
We too had a farm fire near to us around 7 miles away that spread… Worrying as we live so near Sherwood Forest… I always feel so sad for wildlife who cannot get out of the way quickly…
Lets hope these fires do not become more frequent and people act responsibly when out and about.
Thankfully much cooler after our three days of heat.. and drizzle rain here today… Thank you for sharing Marina.. Much love my friend ❤
Happy to hear your heatwave is over. We’re expecting ours tomorrow… but at least some winds will be blowing to cool us down. It is summer after all.
That fire was out soon enough, however more fires are burning elsewhere in Greece. The pros know exactly when to start them… 😡
It’s the wildlife I always think of too.
Sherwood Forest!!!… how fortunate! I think that forest is eternally protected! 😉
Sending many hugs and love.
Yes those Pros, certain do Marina… And I hope you are right about Eternally protected… There are some really old old oaks still standing there.. Including Major Oak…
I hope your area is safe … You take care dear friend.. Much love from a much cooler day and yes it is summer lol… Though some would think it the end of the world.. 🙂 Three days and back to rain LOL 🙂 Hugs your way ❤ ❤ ❤
The Major Oak?!!!!!!! Oh, the spirits are guarding it!
My area is safe… concrete city, not enough room for wind turbines! 😱🤣
…and yes, exactly, everything is terror nowadays. sigh…
More hugs to you, Sue.
Just sent a short email to look put for . Nature Sprites are well and truly in those woods. I walk them often 💖
I can picture you! 💗🌷🌸
This fire season many live with now is horrible and so scary, Marina. I’m glad to read you are safe! We’ve only seen small fires reported on the news. We still have to get through the season of fall which is when it began in CA in 2017, October 8th, horrible that I remember. And I used to love autumn and still do, but unfortunately, fear has wormed its way in because of this new normal. Beautiful last photo, too. Stay safe, my friend. ❤️❤️❤️
That is so sad to hear. Autumn is also my favorite season.
Unfortunately our fires are arson, either accidental or intentional [mainly the latter]. That last photo was taken on another day.
Thank you, my dear Lauren. Lets hope for peaceful forests.
You too, my friend!
Love and many hugs xoxoxoxoxoxo 💖
That’s awful, too, that your fires are mainly arson! And I wondered if your last photo was from a different day. Yes, let’s hope for peaceful forests. We’re backpacking again next month and in Sept. if fires don’t intercept. Fingers crossed. Hugs and love to you again! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Stay safe, my friend. Fires intentionally caused is as you said, “disgusting”, as well as, criminal.
Thank you, my dear Nawfal. They are!
Fortunately fires are out… at least the ones near us.
Oh no! Hope you are safe, Marina. We have had wildfires around this time of year close by and it’s scary xx
Thank you, my dear Christy. They are out, fortunately. Ours -like this one too- are usually arson. Disgusting but true. …Very scary indeed.
Oh! I hope you are safe 💜💜
We’re safe, my dear Willow.. thank you! A lot of concrete between the fires and us and fortunately it is now out! ❤️💖❤️
Thank goodness 💜💜💜
Yikes, a pretty scary sight! Looks like a lot of city between you and the flames, but still awful.
10 km of concrete city, so yes, we’re safe, but I’m so very very angry… every year. Scary, awful and horrible.
I love how Helios drives his chariot across the sky and that your posts greets me as I begin my day on my side of the world. Sending hugs!!!
Oh, Rebecca, I love how your imagination envisaged the scene…. if only t’was so.
At least it’s all out now and tomorrow my sun shall rise again.
Many hugs your way!!!!
Compelling photoreportage, Marina… but what a terrible event.
It’s one of those I wish I hadn’t seen… but …
Terrible indeed, my friend.
I was looking at the pics (beautiful danger) and thinking sun? That doesn’t look like clouds and sun, that looks like smoke and fire! Then realised they look like what they are. Man.. I read through the comments that these fires are set? What the hell is wrong with people?
Stay safe, my friend.
Exactly….. what’s wrong with them!!!! Every year – every single year… Last year was Mt. Parnitha [my sunsets mountain] and this year Pendeli [my sunrises mountain, the mountain Gandalf greets every morning and where I got the alien antennas from]. There are 3 kinds of arson: property – wind turbines [for and from, if you get my point] and political destabilizers. I wish for the worst for whoever decides the fates of people, animals and vegetation.
We’re safe [it may only be 10km away but it’s hard for a fire to live long in concrete.]
That is just insane to me. Why anyone would want to cause this type of damage is beyond me.
I hear you on being safe. Still. Let us hope these idiots are stopped.
…beyond me too!
…and brought to justice! [though I may be asking too much!]
Yeah… that blows…
It’s a terrifying sight Marina with wildfires raging across the world. Your phots are excellent and bring to mind what was once beautiful is now a reminder of the danger our blue planet is in. Thank you darling Marina. xoxoxo
Terrifying indeed, which erases any kind of beauty from the sight. In this case -as with most in our country- it’s arson. And I just pray that one day I’ll see all those criminals face the worst penalties out there …and then some.
Many hugs, sweet Holly! xoxoxoxo
They must stop these arsonists destroying thousand of acres of forest. It’s a horrific crime. I too hope they are severely penalized and prevented from ever repeating such a crime against nature. Hugs back dear Marina xoxoxo
…and love added to the box! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
For sure! ❤️💕🌹🍪💖🦋
Love ya sweet lady 💕
It gets worse each year! Even in Great Britain there have been fires, destroying homes!
Most of ours here are arsons… which is disgusting. May people learn… although I seriously doubt it.
I read the other comments and hope you can stay safe. The wildfires ate tragic
They are indeed. This one was in the suburbs of Athens.
I’m sorry to hear about your fires, as well as those in France and Spain. Much of Texas is in a drought and the risk of fires is high.
Fires are horrible… wherever.
Fiery and beautiful.
Thank you, Tim. Fiery… but not so beautiful, unfortunately. Thankfully it’s out but I can’t help but think of all the animals in it.
Be safe Marina🤓🤍🕊
We are, thank you, my dear Hedy! xoxoxo
👏👏👏📷 great shot of danger and beauty. Have You a wonderful day dear Marina ☀️🌻🤗
Thank you, my friend. Thinking of all the wildlife in flames takes away the beauty of fire…
You too have a wonderful day, my dear friend! 🙏🔆🙏
Oh, no, not another fire! I just checked out a news story. I hope the firefighters are able to get it out quickly.
Thankfully it’s out …for now, but gale force winds still blow strong… a fine recipe for a strong fire.
Whew! Fingers crossed that it stays out.
Oh my gosh … gorgeous pics of a dangerous situation. Seems your are safe – but wishing the best to those who aren’t.
Thank you, my friend. We are safe, eventhough it’s only about 10km away. Unfortunately, a few people were left homeless and innumerable animals perished helpless.
Fiery skies, beautiful but scary at the same times, seems it has become a regular event with the climate crisis, not much going on here in Quebec this year but many parts of Canada have still intense fires, British Columbia and a Lytton, a town that was almost destroyed last year are still in it this year, not very encouraging…
Even though I love fire, I can no longer find beauty it this kind of sight. People are able to survive it but wildlife rarely can…
Fingers crossed it stays that way over there!
Let’s hope so, I have heard that they redesigned part of the town to make it less exposed to fires, hopefully it will work, I guess we will have to learn to live with those ‘new situations’….
Let’s hope it doesn’t!
