    "Wow! What an Adventure!" - Terrifying too. Such a strong and powerful subject matter. Here we are taking the title of this assignment, right up to the extreme. What I love the most about this photograph is the point of view you have used. I feel like I am right there with you, but thankfully from the comfort of my sofa! I also love the atmosphere and movement we see from the helicopters rotor blades churning up the debris. Great job, well done!
