On a recent trip to Washington, DC, I was invited to observe a multi-jurisdictional drill. Operation Shield on the Potomac River was a simulated rescue of victims from a plane crash. Several fire boats taking part were from the DCFD and Prince George’s County FD (PGFD).
This was an interesting opportunity to photograph the boats and to observe some of the DC skyline and monuments from the water.
The conditions were pitch black which required an extremely high ISO setting that produced significant digital noise in the files. Nonetheless, I was able to create some interesting images. Occasionally I used a flash when another boat was close by.
thanks Vito for the invitation
