A visitor from United States posted Mon February 8, 2010:
It's all in the panned motion blur, prop blur, spray blur... and lighting. The foreground reflection is key. I wish there were a little more space below the reflection and that white wing weren't poking out of the subject cowling; marvelous nonetheless. Successful panning (at least without a gyrostabilizer), in my experience, is difficult. I've not heard of "Clark Lake" and the background doesn't look like "Lake Clark", but it sure looks like Campbell Lake, just down the street from where I live in south Anchorage.

Not a bad looking plane for one that used to be upside down at the bottom of Twin Lakes!

Very good

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 19, 2009:
The best picture that I have seen in quite some time. The cable on the tail is to discharge static elctricity.

Nature, colours, panning...
What a great shot you've captured Michael!
Congrats, Rui Alves - Madeira Spotters

"...Wonderful photo. By the way, what is the cable in the back for?"

Water skiing, duuh!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Good panning shot. this type of shot takes a bit of pratice as you have to watch any vertical movement of the camera which could lead to an out of focus shot.

A visitor from Australia posted Sat March 29, 2008:
Colour, movement, interest

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 6, 2007:
There must be at least a thousand adjectives to describe this beauty,so I'll keep it simple. Flawless !

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 2, 2007:
The colors and the contrast are excellent.

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 2, 2007:
Just a beautiful shot of the aircraft. Love the fall colors and crisp clarity of the image. The water almost doesn't look real it's so smooth.

Amazing pic!

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 2, 2007:
That's just a really great pic. 5 stars.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 2, 2007:
Extraordinary shot! Pure and sharp!

A visitor from Denmark posted Thu November 1, 2007:
Sheer Bliss!

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 1, 2007:
Now, that's a great picture ! I love the reflection in the water and the way the water is shining so bright right beneath the plane.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 1, 2007:
Excellent...but who cropped out the water skier!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 1, 2007:
A float plane has its romantic appeal, but there's gotta be a better way to do this (the pontoons causing drag, killing speed and wasting fuel in-flight).

A visitor from El Salvador posted Wed October 31, 2007:
Crisp, clean and sharp. Beautiful location...
