Spotted the most recent Colorado fire ignite this afternoon on Flagstaff mountain in Boulder today. Spent some time at JeffCo Airport (Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport) with my daughter watching the slurry bombers and sky cranes cycle through. I always have my E-PL3 camera with me so I grabbed that and shot what I could in-between the excitement of a 2 year old seeing airplanes up close for the first time.
This first shot is a view of Flagstaff burning from the tarmac at JeffCo with sky cranes (type 1 helicopters) and other fire fighting equipment on the ground while a brief storm with high winds rolled through.
