Heather Moor Afire, Feughside.
Scotland can be dry even in spring. Here a man attempts to beat out some of the flames. Later, a helicopter dropped water bombs on the fire to extinguish it. Burning is used as a controlled method to regenerate the heather which is a valuable asset for grouse shooting.
