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.

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.

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.

#1 is my fav. I love shooting fires. At the big ones you get doughnuts and coffee from the Red Cross ladies.
There was coffee and doughnuts here too... no Red Cross ladies though.

Very nice control of the fire.

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

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

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

It's a whole different world, that's for sure! No more 'mile high plume of black smoke'

I could probably find one!
