That's a pretty cool effect esp. Did you get a 2 wheeled friend again?

Here's a few from the summer so far! Would have had lots more pics if it wasn't for all the smoke we've had!

Taken about a year ago. A an assault on an Indonesian military
platoon - while on their way to this airstrip in order to pick up a radio
installation - saw us canceling our mountain ops there for about one
month.

The 185 is at Emerald lake, right on the boarder of the Yukon and the NWT. The otter is at our dock.

So I went to the Tillsonburg Airshow this past weekend. I think the last time I went to an Airshow was 14 years ago. Had a good buddy of mine flying in the show, and a couple other friends! It was tough to narrow down the shots. First time hanging out in a photo pit -- I felt a little inferior with my 55-200 f/4-5.6G :lol: Enjoy!

Those are the most disreputable floats I've seen, even in salt water! How did you get them so crappy?

Silt from the river we operate out of. That and my post production flow exaggerates them... a lot.

Figured I would contribute one... On a new PPL, took a few friends up the Bruce Peninsula... Not the same quality as what were seeing, but a neat pic none the less!

Cheers,

This thread seems to have gone pretty quiet, so figured I'd try kick start some life into it with summer around the corner. I can't take credit for this shot, a buddy snapped it a while back while out jaunting around The Yukon.

Keep the shots coming, there some awesome pics out there!
