Kings Park Fires

Postby SimonB » Sat Jan 17, 2009 1:05 pm

Hi there,

Well, it's kinda weather related (Tim, move it if you want), as you know there was some bugga lightning fires in Kings Park yesterday, I had my camera at work for another reason, but I resisted taking pics as it was a bit far away. Here's a pic of the big chopper that I did take from the morning:

Late in the afternoon the fire flared up again and appeared a lot closer, I gave in and grabbed my camera and took these (40D+70-200+1.4TC):

Please excuse the reflection from inside the office:

It was looking pretty hairy by now:

2x Fire Attack choppers were in attendance now - 670:

and 671:

It didn't look good to us:

A 'banking' sequence:

2 more choppers turned up, but they wouldn't cooperate and line up for me, much to the merriment of the others in the office (yes, I do have a reputation as a camera nut) :P

A final one, before I went home:

Well done to all of the crews, chopper pilots and observers. I'll line up behind you when they catch the bugger.

Simon....
