Before and after:

North Stradbroke Island, seen here beyond Russell Island, and viewed from Lamb Island, spent Christmas and New Year alight from a bushfire started by a lightning strike. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured, nor property lost, but it was touch-and-go there for a while, with strong winds not doing the firefighters any favours before heavy rain helped calm things down.

Below, a closer view. And while it looks kinda ugly at the moment, there are actually green shoots in there already, and it all should be back to normal in a few months.
