It seemed like every day there was a new fire burning somewhere in Idaho this year. I was able to catch this air tanker making a drop to help contain a fire right out our backdoor. I consider this one of my best photographs of the year because of how well it did in some local contests these last few months. It placed second overall in the East Idaho State Fair which in turn generated some sales within the air tanker community. It also just placed 2nd runner up in the East Idaho Community Photo Contest. It has been a honor to see and hear the response from the guys at the tanker bases how well they enjoy the photo. I was just glad I was at the right place at the right time to catch this shot.
