A use for slideshow feature

On Wednesday of this week a powerline started a brush fire near my home in East Honolulu.  The fire burned high on a ridge and needed a helicopter to drop water on it. The helicopter fills a large container slung from the craft by dropping it in a nearby water source.  In our case, a saltwater canal. After dropping water multiple times,  one particular drop right over high tension lines caused a spectacularly bright and loud short.  I got a nice sequence of shots from the moment the water touched the lines until the end of the short.  I could post one of the shots in the sequence but this event calls for the ability to view the entire moment.  For the first time I’ve got a reason to use the slideshow feature on the blog!
