This event was a fire behind the tip at Glenorchy in January 2014. The fires had to call the choppers in as there was no hydrant up there, and they couldn’t refill their tankers fast enough. Chopper guy did a great job, making about 8 drops over the course of the afternoon.
Fortunately for me, this is just across the valley from my house and I was set up on the deck having a great time all afternoon!

In the late 1970s I completed the 2 years of a 4 yr Professional Photography Cert at TAFE, but was defeated by the physics of lenses.
In 2004 I bought my first DSLR & now shoot full time with medium format digital and professional Canon DSLRs.
I provide tuition to small groups via photography workshops for small groups (max 5) and Photoshop PP classes, and conduct small group photography tours to Australian & (soon) NZ destinations.

    Wow very dramatic, these pilots are amazing. Great capture Odille.

  • Thanks. I have about 100 of the fire, and lots of this. Thinking of making a time lapse video, but I’m not very good at it.
