Helicopter lifting water.

D.N.R. fighting Forest fire.
Department of Natural Resources fighting
Isolated fire.

The Helicopter was picking up water from
a pond on a friend's property.

Above it drops,
and below it lifts.
Around and around very quickly.

And off to make a drop on the fire. They do a great job.

Somewhat dangerous to themselves.

that is a scary job. but definitely a well-needed one and hopefully effective too.

from hearses to helicopter, snapper II you ROCK! i like all the photos and enlarged each one to see the detail, but my pick for favorite is the last one, it is artsy looking. that is a big passenger helicopter, surprised they are using one that big. hope it is out now.

Wow---you see some incredible things in your area, SnapII... That is dangerous work--but as you say, is needed to help someone else.

Thanks for sharing.
