Just beautiful..!

A visitor from - posted Wed September 12, 2012:
Well done. An absolutly dream. A lake, a plane an a lot of room.

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 1, 2012:
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

A visitor from Canada posted Sun November 22, 2009:
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

A visitor from Canada posted Sun August 16, 2009:
This photo captures the honest simplicity that the only a beaver in the mountians can represent. favorite shot on the net, right here. thank you!

A visitor from - posted Fri February 13, 2009:
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!

A visitor from Belgium posted Fri January 30, 2009:
I really want to take place in this plane and fly over the wonderfull sceneries

A visitor from - posted Wed January 14, 2009:
This looks unreal.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 18, 2008:
Shows the DHC-2 Beaver in good detail in its classic setting with a backdrop of spectacular scenery.

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 13, 2008:
What a peaceful scene; wish I loading my gear for a trip into the outback.

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 26, 2007:
This is a FANTASTIC plane with a supurb background. It makes me wish I were there! I have this set as my background.

A visitor from United Arab Emirates posted Sun November 25, 2007:
Nice backdop

Bush flying in a nutshell, and a picture carries a thousand words! 5*****

A visitor from Canada posted Tue September 11, 2007:
Such breathtaking beauty both the plane and the landscape mixed seamlessly, the plane looks like it belongs there in natures are a beaver …only found in B.C. ! Great job Simon !

A visitor from Canada posted Wed August 8, 2007:
This Picture captures the reason why I'm a PROUD Canadian.. Peaceful and calm... Breathtaking!

A visitor from Greece posted Tue May 29, 2007:
What a beautiful and dream-like picture :D Excellent technique and composition and a 5-star rating Simon. Exceptional !

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 12, 2007:
Absolutely stunning picture.

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 24, 2007:
Beautiful BC,one can only dream of perfection like this ! Amazing tech,and the composition is breathtaking ! A 5-star for sure.Congrat's Simon

A visitor from Germany posted Thu March 22, 2007:
The peace what this picture radiates, with the caught landscape, is marvelous.

A visitor from Norway posted Thu March 22, 2007:
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!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu March 22, 2007:
Just like a Bob Ross painting.. 5*!

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 22, 2007:
Wow, amazing job! This makes me want to jump in and go flying... You can alsmost feel that the airplane wants to do the same...

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 22, 2007:
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.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed March 21, 2007:
Great! love the yellow wich you also see at the top of the mountain.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed March 21, 2007:
Clear view and crystal clear perspective. nice contrasts with mountains, water, air and land...

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 21, 2007:
Wow. Amazing scenery and a great looking plane. I love how still the water is. This should be on a postcard.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed March 21, 2007:
It communicates the crispness and clarity of the location - and I can count the rivets!
