Naval Amphibious Base, Coronado

Camera:
Canon EOS 5D, EF70-200mm, f/2.8L IS USM

As part of her public affairs job, 1st Lt. Allison Burgos accepts photo submissions from combat correspondents and cameramen. But on this day, the “amateur” photographer stepped in as needed—and lucked out. “I was simply documenting the operation in an amazing sunset,” says the Oceanside resident. In the photograph, the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s Maritime Raid Force practices fast-roping techniques. The UH-1Y Venom helicopter hovers while the Marines slide down the rope, then hold the rope to the side to help the helicopter land safely.
