A POSTCARD FROM CHRIS ALBERT....SOMEWHERE IN COLOMBIA.

Hey Ron,

Mate thought I'd send you a shot of my best side, the back!!

This is a raid with Colombian "Junglas", Anti-narcotics Jungle Company. They were fast roping in to hit a cocaine processing plant hidden in the jungle.

I was getting seriously smacked around by the rotor wash of the Black Hawk and could not get a tight shot of the faces of these guys showing the tension of inserting into a potential firefight. Drug dealers/growers will often engage them. The 'Junglas' are more special ops soldiers than tradition police and specialise in jungle warfare.

So I went manual zoom....ran in closer! Hope you get a laugh out of it.

Our sound guy Eric Kerchner, who took the shots, not only has 10kg of sound gear, but carries and shoots with a 5D MkII.

Cheers,
Chris Albert
Cameraman
