Wyoming Wildfire! -- Helo Operations
Lens: Tair 3 300mm F4.5 Preset, Nikkor 50mm F1.8G Camera: Nex 5n, D600 Photo Location: Central Wyoming 
Posted By: Colorado CJ, 02-20-2013, 09:14 PM

A few months back, I came up on a wildfire in central Wyoming. I've just got around to processing them.

Luckily I had two cameras along. I had a Nex 5n with my Tair 3 300mm F4.5 Preset mounted to it and my D600 with a 50mm F1.8G lens.

It was near sunset and the low light, with the very heavy smoke made for some somewhat difficult photography. The fully manual Tair 3 didn't make it any easier

Hope you like them.

Wow - well done. The first one, especially, is dramatic.

Thanks. There wasn't much light, but it helped in a few of the shots I think!

Thanks Jer.

Every time I photograph one of these wildfires I can't help but think how awesome it would be to be embedded into one of these wildland firefighting groups for a summer. I'd LOVE to make a photo book on the subject.

For now its only the outskirts for me though

Great series of shots. Love that first one. The series really shows the rugged terrain the firefighters had to deal with.

Thanks Susan! Yeah, you really got to hand it to wildland firefighters. That is one tough job they have.
