Fire!!

Photography can be a lot like life - Sometimes the best laid plans fall by the wayside when life occurs. We spent the 4th of July weekend in the Winthrop area, and planned to get out and shoot just about every day.  We had a great night on Goat Wall practicing night photography including our first attempts shooting the Milky Way - with more practice we may have some shots worthy of posting.  The next day we were off to go shoot waterfalls, when we came across a fresh wildfire!  We pulled off the road and started shooting.

First up was the Smoke Jumper plane, dropping supplies and a few Jumpers.

I really have to hand it to the people that put themselves out there during fire season.  This is much closer than I would ever want to get to a fire...

Notice the Smoke Jumper just at the base of the fire.  Hot day on the job!!

We've started carrying our gear more places, because you never know where an opportunity to capture that next awesome shot will be....
