Taken yesterday afternoon as a solitary fire fighting helicopter worked to contain a blaze on a ridge 15kms south west of Wauchope NSW.This area of the mid north coast has so far escaped the full force of the fires across eastern Australia during the last few weeks.

FIRST SHOT IS FANTASTIC Very Powerful..
Just watch yourself you know I'm sure how fast things can change around these fires and getting in trouble is the LAST THING YOU WANT ;o)

Keep Safe & Great Shooting

Jack

Fire and water - we usually treasure them but when out of control, they fill us with fear. Amazing capture...

A wonderful graphic series of images Brett! It wasn't the greatest day to be out fighting bush fires yesterday!

What an amazing shot. We had a lot of coverage of the fires in the news over here. We are also having our own issues with fires here too. Firefighters are fighting a big fire on the outskirts o our city right now.

Great capture, Brett.
We had similar experiences last spring here. I am hoping our spring 2013 is not a repeat of 2012. GREAT PHOTO!
