    We rocked up to Nelson, New Zealand, and all was well on the hills in front. About an hour later, the hill was fiercely ablaze. First we noticed, though, was a helicopter coming over the house with a bucket on a string below. The firefighters were amazing, in their ability to dump however much water, with pin point precision when needed, or to swamp a larger area to wet it. Fantastic to watch them in action, but arrests were made before the fire was out some 5-6 hours later.

    Feel free to comment - but not about the shutter speed which was too fast for blur on the helicopter blades :D:D:D!!!

    That must have been an amazing as well as very scary experience. Nicely done with the photos.

    Thanks Roger. We were quite safe, though my S-i-L had wanted us, quite rightly, to get stuff packed in case we were evacuated - did happed further inland, where the fires were much worse.
