The "Final" Photos From The "Lens Of Brad Blois"

I have made 2 previous posts, entitled Photoblog: Some Fine Photos From the Lens Of Brad Blois, and More Photos From The Lens Of Brad Blois. Well, here are the last of Brad's photos (until he sends us some new ones), they are quite good.

The last 3 photos are my favourite, as they show what flying is really like in the bush. Brad went out to "Pawn Lake", to pick up a load of "Wild Rice". I have posted previously about wild rice, and my post was called Wild Rice! - (also called " Mahnoomin, Folle Avoine, Canadian Rice, Water Oats, Blackbird Oats, and Marsh Oats"). Pawn Lake is owned and picked by Laurie Gaffray, and the photos show an Otter in it's element, in the bush.

KYG loaded with rice, against the rock. Another load of rice sits on shore, and the rice-boat takes a rest. Posted by Hello

Laurie, in orange cover-alls, takes a breather, as the Otter is now loaded. Posted by Hello

Simple, yet efficient. A rice-picker consisting of 2 pontoons, a frame, platform, header, and 350 CI small-block Chevy engine turning a prop for propulsion.  Posted by Hello

As you can see, some great photos. Yes, folks, there is a lot to see out in the "bush". Thanks to Brad Blois for sharing some of his "sights" with us.
