Sorry, I forgot that I wanted to say something about the image, as requested.

Took a day off work, drove 250 km to the Forestry firefighting site to see the aeroplanes in operation. No call-out the whole day. No fire. Nothing.

Did not stop me though, took some 1200 pictures of the non-moving planes, the ground personnel, the aeroplanes, the ground crews relaxing, and some of the aeroplanes,

This image was of the crew relaxing after it became clear that there was to be no call-out for the day.

Thank you for all the kind comments, and the bling.

one creature, one motion, one energy, one image.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery.

Yep, got to say this is right up there as one of the best.

I especially love the trail of dust rising from the ground... street photography with meaning! Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1070026.jpg

Ohmygosh! I better see this one with a ribbon under it when it's all said and done. This is spectacular, and is headed straight to my favorites folder. True artistry, and a no-brainer 10!
