This is in part a subjective response as I love British Columbia and Vancouver Island in particular. The subtle back-lighting on the aircraft accentuates its lines, and the green forest in the background demonstrates how the photographer has chosen optimal framing.

All of these amphibians are glorious to look at, and represent a vanished magical age. (Though maybe it's better not to have to fly in one, though - particularly considering the awful safety record of BC aviation: "rock-lined clouds").
