Description

While photographing Cloverdale and nearby areas, a small wildfire broke out. After seeing a helicopter rise on numerous occasions over a residential neighborhood I decided to try and locate the helicopter and observe it's activity. I was fortunate to locate the place where the helicopter was originating and observed a Cal Fire crew making several passes "SCOOPING" water from a nearby pond for use in fire suppression on the nearby wildfire. The wake and force of air made holding the camera steady very difficult.
