Great capture! Greetings.GGR.
Thanks GGR, Regards, Chris
Interesting shot for a interesting experiment!
Yes PiGì :) All the best, Chris
Seriously Dangerious Best Regards,David
Just having another look at your map and I see this photo is a long way from Belarus where we were in Sept just gone. I think where you took your photo the scenery in that area would be very beautiful Chris. Well in fact I think all over Russian is beautiful.I love looking at the little villages and walking around there streets.Alway magnificent vegy and flower garden, friendly people and not so friendly dogs until one gets to know them!!! :-)Regards,David
Another great shot Chris.
We burned an island in a bog in an experiment looking at carbon emissions from boreal forest fires. NASA and the Russians flew a helicopter through the convection column for smoke sampling - I heard it was a pretty rough ride...
Yep those kind of turbulence's can have you groveling in the cockpit, real quick.
Great capture Chris. I have worked on prescribed burns here on the southwest corner of the Olympic Peninsula (few of these now). We sometimes burned right up against standing old growth. The forests here are sometimes referred to as the asbestos forest. Of course, with prolonged dry spells they will burn.
Thanks Larry. I spent several summers working on hotshot and helitack crews based in New Mexico. Never went up to Washington, but did see a lot of fire in California, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, and Montana. This forest surprised me because it didn't seem as if there was much fuel - just the lichen and a few shrubs. The pines are clean-boled with no ladder fuel.... but the lichen burns like napalm - very hot! The forests here are a bit like lodgepole forests in Yellowstone. There is lightning in the summer and huge areas burn but post-fire seeding is prolific so a new forest begins growing within a few years.
Very impressive! Regards from Russia.Walera.
Спасибо Валера! This was many years ago and now new trees are growing on this island.
Great shot in a great experiences, congrats !!!
Thanks Wind Rider, wishing you happy trails! Regards, Chris
A nice photo of a bad event, cbaisan! Like
Greetings from Italy. PiGì
It was a scientific experiment PiGì, looking at carbon cycle and gas emissions from forest fires which are a common and natural occurrence in these forests. Pleased you found it interesting.
