Title supplied by cataloger. Photographer's caption reads, "I took the helicopter door off. I loosened the seatbelt as far as it would go and put a tab of gaffer's tape across the buckle. It's a routine. When you hang out the door to keep the landing skids out of the photos you stay as safe as you can. A client was picking up the tab on a commercial shoot, but I persuaded the pilot to make a detour over Hollywood. The slanting winter sun lit up the ridgetop mansions. Over the crest of the Hollywood Hills we spotted a little initial plume of smoke in Wildwood Canyon. It turned out to be the start of a fire that burned for days. Fire coordinators pulled 350 men off the raging 24,000-acre Topanga Fire and dispatched them to tackle the new threat. Santa Ana winds relentlessly pushed the fire into steep terrain in the San Gabriel Mountains above Burbank."
