Is that Cold Springs Trail that cuts through the burnt area or is it an optical illusion?

looks like the trail to me

really with the watermarks? take a minute and seriously think about the purpose they serve and if it's appropriate here.

894:

What's your issue with watermarks? Nothing wrong with the photographer wanting viewers to know who took the pics. Unless you were planning on passing them as your own why would you care?

And yes, it is appropriate...

To Henry, Bravo! Great photos.

Amazing shots, esp. the one of the underside of a helicopter and the one with the rotors captured in still motion, that's some fast shutter speed! Excellent.

And to the wet blanket- Bitter, party of one, your table is ready!

Someone has a really great camera and can use it well!
Nicely done and thanks for the excellent shots.

Looks to me as though there is a watermark on only one of them --- and given these are action shots, having them is not offensive, as names are on scenic shots. Having watermarks on those is distracting, making them look like postcards for sale. These photos are excellent, giving a clear idea of what was happening with the fire, what was involved. Thanks for them!!

907 - Thanks. Chuck Cagara here. FYI - I took the two close-up helicopter shots using a D800E with 300mm lens and 1.7 tele-converter if you happen to be a photo buff.

907: Its funny you mention that as I generally up my aperture to f/8 or higher when shooting aircraft just to get some motion blur on the props/rotors. It looks unnatural to me when they are frozen and look like they aren't moving.

This isn't a criticism of the work at hand, just an observation.

watermark totally acceptable in my opinion- that is a fantastic shot!!!

As the submitter of about 60% of the photos on this page, I kind of see 894's point. I debated adding a watermark to my shots, but it felt wrong to me. Mostly because I think they're ugly. But it's a fact of life for pro 'togs that their photos regularly get stolen, so...

Any of the personnel who put their lives on the line deserve a BIG THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just thought we had a sign like the Hollywood sign that said Henry's name & I just never noticed it. (I don't care about watermarks on these kids of images - like 913, having them across pretty pics (which tend to be huge obnoxious watermarks, whereas henry's was pretty subtle) is annoying to me.
926: Thank you for adding photos - I wouldn't have minded your watermark. :)

923P - I took the 2 heli photos and I agree with you. Normally I pan with a slower shutter speed to allow for some natural blur, but here I wanted sharp detail in the markings.

All are fantastic shots!
I wanted to give a shout out to heli pilots after watching the Gibraltar Road rescue videos.

The response here really underscores the benefit of having aircraft ready and nearby.

Thanks for the photos, watermarks or not!

Great job but I can't help but wonder - had there been anything like this kind of response to the Tea Fire, as opposed to this one above Montecito, hundreds of homes, including ours, might not have been destroyed.
