The dairy is serene, untouched by the nearby fire

I hope the dairy remains serene and healthy. The contrast between the half-destroyed foreground and the spic and span dairy is very evocative and well captured.

I'm glad you mentioned the contrast, which is what intrigued me. In fact, I was just now thinking about creating a tag for pictures in which there's a contrast in subject matter. People use the tag "contrast" mainly for contrasts of light and dark. I may create "contrasts" for my own use, or maybe I need to think of something more explanatory. Perhaps this is my oldest photo where a subject contrast is (for me, anyway) the main point of interest.

Thank you, blai. What I couldn't include was the strong smell lingering many days after the fire.
