Containing The Flames

As bad as you hate to see wild fires, they can make for some amazing shots. This pilot and his aircraft was helping fight a blaze right outside our home a couple years ago. He made several passes and I was able to catch this shot right after he dumped his retardant and helped the ground crew contain the blaze.

1/1000 sec shutter speed, ƒ/9.0, ISO 100, focal length 400.0mm

Early Bird Gets the Best Parking

Rising early to shoot arrivals to the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Sun-N-Fun fly in Lakeland, Florida, I was greeted with morning ground fog which made for an interesting sunrise glow as fly-in volunteers marshalled arrivals into parking slots.
