High Flying Skies

When I return to Powell River from Bellingham via Pacific Coastal Airlines, I take the last flight of the day. This time of year, that means some pretty spectacular inflight sunsets.

The power of the turboprop on the Beechcraft 1900C is balanced by the soft light flowing over Lasqueti and Texada islands in the distance. What a ride! -- Margy

  3. Beautiful shot. I've taken the same flights about three times but so far I have not seen anything as beautiful.

  4. What a great photo! LOVE the motion on the prop. And as always, the gorgeous scenery...never get tired of your vistas.
    On the weather...we've had only one hot night by the coast. It was so much fun to get a bit of rain this morning. We're heading for Mammoth Lakes on Saturday morning for just the weekend. Our son is there with friends already. So looking forward to it...woo-hoo!

  6. What a beautiful sight to see from a plane. And what a beautiful sight to know you are home.
    Margy, I have canoes on the Snohomish river. We put in at the boat launch in down town Snohomish. I really prefer lake canoeing to the river. Now where I took that picture is at Langus River Park on the Snohomish and lots of boaters go in at that boat launch. It is in Everett. I don't know about kayaking on the Skagit. My friend goes everywhere I will ask her and get back to you. OK? MB

  8. This is an absolutely gorgeous shot!

    My boyfriend and I walked all over Vancouver and when things were a bit further, we took the bus or the Skytrain :o)If you think Vancouver traffic is a challenge though, try Montreal's on for size, or worse yet, Toronto's!
