Bush Plane Over Inside Passage – Alaska
Alaskan bush planes use the Inside Passage which follows the Alaska Panhandle as their highway. Only the old, high wing, tail draggers with the ability to fly slow and make short takeoffs and landings will do the job. A skilled bush pilot can land in 20 ft. I made this capture from the top deck of a small ferry on the way back from fishing in Ketchikan. The film was Ektachrome 400 push processed to 800. You can always count on a lot of grain when you do this, and for me the grain gives a nice painterly affect to the image.
