Cane fire by postaldude66 Cane fire by postaldude66
A photo of smoke from a sugar cane fire, from Port Douglas, North Queensland. They seem to burn off the stubble of sugar cane once it is cut... i guess it regenerates nutrients for the next years crop. For some stupid reason we never stopped next to sugar cane for me to take a photo all holiday, but it is absolutely everywhere in this region of Queensland, and is the main industry along with tourism. The crops are quite photogenic too, they were too high at this time of year though to get good photos anyway.

Very interesting i like the way the sun is behind the smoke creating great tone in the clouds, and the composition of the image is perfect. I like the landscape in the background just makes the photo look interesting. Well done :D

In costa rica they say the fires will also chase off all the snakes in the fields. Sugar is a very profitable crop...it fuels many economies in the the smaller countries :D. Very captivating picture!!
