Wow. Amazing scenery and a great looking plane. I love how still the water is. This should be on a postcard.

A beautiful depiction of life and aviation in Northern Canada! That's the kind of peaceful vacation spot that I would love to visit by airplane.

Excellent composition. Colours are saturated, the water looks glossy. Beautiful colours from the sun's setting. Great depth of field. The picture gives you the feeling of a long gone era in aviation. The Beaver is resting in its "natural habitat". Makes me wanna move to the "Bush" and take up flying again; flying the way it's supposed to be!

Fantastic photo!! Could the water get any calmer? When looking at this picture it's like all noise faded away and all that was left was the sound of the air. Great job!

Awesome picture, I live in Muncho Lake and am good friends with the people who own this beaver. He's an awesome pilot, if your ever up north in this area and are going fishing or flight-seeing, be sure to fly with this guy, I'd say he's right up there with the best pilots around. Thanks for posting

First, the paint scheme of the plane is beautiful. Also, the planes' brilliant colors contrast against the dark teal-gray background of the lake and mountain. The grayish background also creates a sense of foreboding.
The evening sunset lights the plane and the distant
mountain face in the same orange glow. I wish I were
there.
