Description

On the return trip from Brooks Falls in our De Havilland Canada DHC-2 Otter Twin to Homer we passed by Mt. Illiamna. Rising from the shore of Chinitna Bay in the Middleground, this dormant stratovolcano towers above the Chigmit Mountains, an extension of the Aleutian Range, on the Alaskan Peninsula. As with photography, flying is heavily dependent on good atmospheric conditions. Under different conditions we may have taken a completely different route and missed this view. Small, fixed-wing aircraft have vibrations associated with the engine and propeller, and are easily jostled by wind gusts. The photographer must use his arms to form a gimble to counteract these and absorb the vibrations.
