That's beautiful. I composition and colors and light. And also in its meaning. I am in awe of people who dedicate their lives in service of rescue, often at the risk of their own lives. Awesome shot.

Amazing that you caught that sight. It gives me vertigo...I just can't imagine dangling there. I'm glad someone else CAN or people would not get rescued like this. Wonderful !

Great shot of this chopper in flight. Your fast shutter speed captures the propeller nicely, actually giving a sense of motionless.

Cue the music: "You just keep me hangin' on..." Great shot, and a testament to being in the right place at the right time. Was this a river rescue?
