Helicopter vs Fire

Monday July 6, 2020 –   A fire on the foothills near our house gave us a scare.  There were many grass fires over the 4th of July weekend in San Jose which doesn’t surprise me much since all 4th of July fireworks were canceled.  I can not recall ever having controlled city sponsored fireworks cancelled because of fire danger.   I guess the fear of Covid infections is more scientifically scary than encouraging the illegal use of fireworks by kids because off the cancelled events.

A Cal Fire Helicopter dropped a load of fire retardant on the flames and then made a half a dozen runs with water from Calero Reservoir to put out this hillside fire.  I had a great chance to test out my Panasonic 100-400mm ƒ/4-6.3 ASPH POWER OIS LEICA DG VARIO-ELMAR  lens on a GH5 .
