I am delighted to say that I have three pilot friends offering to pitch in this weekend and provide pictures.
Here’s a great batch of photographs from Al Nelson. He sent quite an album, so they had to be a little smaller, but you can still click on them to see a larger version.
I’m going to put his pictures up in reverse order, so that we start in Kenora and end up in Lac du Bonnet.
This shot not only shows the open water just reaching the tip of Scotty Island, it also shows quite a bit of water around Middle Island and in the Hay Island / Moore Bay area.
Because I’m showing you Al’s pictures in reverse order, it seems as if we’re pulling back in this series of pictures of Poplar Bay.
Moving on, two pictures of Clearwater Bay. From the highway, Pye’s Landing still looks pretty frozen, but look how much water there is to the south, around Corkscrew Island.
And Zigzag, too.
Next stop, Echo Bay.
Then two pictures of Shoal Lake.
I’ve been itching to get a look at Falcon Lake and West Hawk, and this shot is just gorgeous.
Lastly, down the Winnipeg River to Lac du Bonnet.
A fabulous set of pictures taken from Al’s Cessna 180. This shows what aerial photography can do if you take the time it deserves. Thanks, Al!
