So many great things about this shot. The sky, the plume of fire to the left, the crimson colored streams of stuff spewing from the underbelly of the super-cool-looking old plane, and it's flying so low and banking to the left(?) so that we get a good view of it. The slanted lines of the horizon add to the dynamic nature of the image, too. Congratulations!

Oh this is great. Very photojournalistic. I love the warm tones and the action of the retardant falling from the plane.

Good God Man you are dedicated to your photography ! Fantastic to see an old Mitchell in action :). I can almost feel the pilots thoughts (pull up, pull up).
