****POY 2015, I came upon this shot just as the sun started peeking through the clouds after a somewhat dreary day covering a massive brushfire in the mountains above Wahiawa. Exposing for the highlights yielded a layered, textured image and the helo's position in the sky was just right framed in a patch of white cloud.****
A Blackhawk helicopter works to douse flames atop a ridgeline near the 2500 block of California Avenue on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 in Wahiawa. Firefighters have been dealing with two different brushfires in the Wahiawa area since Monday, and are using helicopters to douse flareups and flames. (Jamm Aquino/The Honolulu Star-Advertiser).
