    Another session at the RCN Fire Training School. These sailors are learning advanced helicopter-crash rescue and fire-fighting techniques. As always, C&C appreciated.

    #1 is my fav. I love shooting fires. At the big ones you get doughnuts and coffee from the Red Cross ladies.

    Very nice control of the fire.

    Its very easy to have everything blown out when shooting fire and you handledit very well.

    These are interesting and fun to look at.

    Nothing I would change.

    • Incredible!! You have an extremely eye catching set here. Number one is my favorite because of the burst pattern in the stream of water. I bet it was amazing to watch! I might have been to entranced to remember to take photos!

    Thanks for sharing.

    I love #1. Now come on, @tirediron, why didn't you take a picture of the flames from inside out?

    It's a very nice series. I just totally LOVE #1. The silhouette of the fire fighters, the jets of water caught in the blast, how you didn't let the flames get over-exposed, the overall composition. That's fine work sir--damn well done. The whole series is good but that one in particular is impressive.

    Thanks! It was.

    There was coffee and doughnuts here too... no Red Cross ladies though.

    Thanks! :)

    Yep!

    Thanks Jazzie!

    Yeah! I was shooting one-handed and covering my face with the one that wasn't holding the camera!

    Dam... why didn't I think of that???????

    Thanks Joe!

    Wow! Great set, John. It somehow looks much more intense than the training fires we had when I was in the mob.
