Awesome lighting and pattern so beautifully captured!
perfect sharpness, vivid colour and details
very pleasing photo
A real beauty, this landscape! I like it very much for its artistic and abstract aspect. The shapes and the lighting are amazing. From my point of view, I would crop the upper part with the sky and only show the patterns...
Well seen, well done!

Woah! Pretty impressive view! It would be very scary to get lost in this maze of rivers and lakes.
Excellent capture that gives a sense of distance and awe.
+++ Well composed with a pretty straight horizon. Stunning lighting and I love the flare in the bottom-right. Great contrast.
--- Nothing ;)
Very well done James and thankyou for adding me as a favourite,

Amazing again! I just wondered at the beginning what it was. Looked like a floral design. I just look and contemplate what wonderflul shapes and forms nature can design. Very interesting note too.
Thanks a lot

That is amazing, not much land between all the waterways and lakes, bit scary thinking global warming, I would imagine alot more land will be under water.
An interesting excersise would be to take another photo in flight, same time of the year, same place, just to see what the patterns are now 13 years later.
Very interesting, TFS

it looks so easy at times to envisage ones position from the air but on the ground the local heights take over and all you can see is a few metres around
this does make the mind feel insecure at the perplexity and mazelike convolutions of the waterways..even if in a powered boat i think one would run out of fuel long before reaching the 'exit'
good archival stuff transparencies and you have got a presentable scan from it..
definately this shot is a case for GPS navigation

What a stunning landscape. Your birdeye view showed what beauty nature can produce and would not have been seen if not taken from a plane. The different patterns of the rivers and lakes is beautiful, but the sunlight reflecting of it makes it even better. I can just imagine getting lost in a canoe navigating this maze.

Unusual POV, view and so wonderful picture with amazing combination of lights, reflections and dark. Crisp sharpness of the image and wonderful framing. Bravo and TFS.

Hello again James!
And again a beautiful bird POV showing amazing beauty of nature! I had oportunity to see some regions of Arctic from the plane but never something like this. Beautiful presentation, even if a little to dark for me in the left corner :)
Best withes from rather warmer place ;)

I was just looking at some of your photos of my continent. I came across too many that I know I had critiqued but obviously never hit the ADD button! I tend to do that. This is one of those I know I would have critiqued because the Mackenzie Delta is one place I always regretted not flying over. We drove to Inuvik about 28+ years ago. We were among the first 10 to make the drive and one of only three to make it back out without major incident... actually the only one to not encounter real difficulties. That is if you don't count sliding all the way down a hill in torrential rains and sliding right onto the ferry just when the drunk captatin managed to line the boat up with the ramp for a brief few seconds. Anyway I really wanted to fly out from Inuvik to Tucktiuktuk, but we had our dog with us and I wasn't about to leave her with anyone in Inuvik. It was a bit rough in those days. Anyway I like your photo and love the light.

Incredible, artistic view of a forbidding place.The non-ending view of this wilderness injects ones admiration for the explorers in old times, who had no modern communication or help.
