Narooma Camera Club member, Rosy Williams has been out and about photographing the impact the current bushfires are having on the marine environment.
Ms Williams said she was walking on Bar Beach North at Narooma on January 6 and was inspired to take photos of all the bush fire debris building up on the beach and in the water.
"It was clogging the tidal pools and turning Narooma blue into Narooma black.
"Fingers crossed the fire front will be subdued and the start of the huge clean-up can begin.
Then we will wait for the slow return of natures beauty and that in turn should start making us feel a little better," she said.
One bright moment on Rosy's beach walk was the discovery of one solitary pink flower growing on the beach its leaves covered in gray ash.
