Below are two reminders of the last of the winter ice that you saw in my previous post.
The winter ice has now fully melted and Spring is here!
Many .. but not all .. of the Float Planes based here in Anchorage Alaska are now in-the-water!
I find the below photo very pleasant to look upon.
Anchorage Alaska is a very beautiful city.
Oh My! Miss Spring .. we sure are very happy to see your pretty face!
Some of the Float Planes have their very-own small-lagoon!
As you can see in the below photos .. a few of the Float Planes remain land-locked.
"Come on Dad! Get me into the water Dad! The weeds are already growing around my pontoons! In a week I will be surrounded by a jungle Dad!"
"Me too .. I want into the water!"
On the left side of the below photo .. note the small utility storage shed behind the Float Plane.
On the right edge of the below photo is another example of a Float Plane utility storage shed.
Some of these small utility storage sheds are miniature works-of-art! This shed's Float Plane is out flying. Do you see his Float Plane's small lagoon on the left behind the shed?
The below photo is a shot of one of the most famous of all of the Alaskan Bush Planes .. be they outfitted with floats for the water or wheels for the bush or skis for the snow ..
A de Havilland Canada DHC-2 BEAVER!
Just feast-your-eyes upon this beautiful aircraft!
All of the smaller Float Planes were whispering to each other .. in hushed and reverent tones ..
"There goes a de Havilland Beaver!" .. "Isn't he absolutely magnificent!" ..
I felt honored to capture him .. production ceased in 1967 and they are getting to be 'rare' birds!
Much Joy .. Thanks So Very Much for hanging-in-here with me! .. Cap ..
