Water Bombing & Slinging

Good day, all:

Currently, our forest region has 27 fires burning – fourteen are out of control, four are being held and nine are under control. Our temperatures have been hot this week reaching +30C and higher in our corner of Northwestern Alberta. At least two smaller communities have been evacuated, threatened by fire and smoke. One fire has a 15000 hectare involvement. The photos presented are of recent water bombing and water slinging operations in the La Crete area – the state of emergency, there, has been lifted at noon today.

Listening to – Shawn Colvin’s All Fall Down and Walter Trout’s Turn Off Your TV.

Quote to Inspire – “When I shoot a scene I often shoot a hundred frames sometimes over a few hours or days, before I begin to get a real handle on what I want in the frame and how I want it there.” – David duChemin

  1. You have some truly fabulous photos here. It seems a lot of places are having forest fires this year.

    • Thank you for your kind words and for looking in, Maralee. I agree … there does seem to be more in the way of Forest Fires, this year, and portions of North America are reporting drought. For us, today, in northwestern Alberta we have plenty of rain, the first we’ve had in a long spell. It should go a long way in terms of settling down fires in our region. 🙂
