    Great shots Jan! I'm convinced that you have the same relationship with water that Aharon has with snow.

    Heilige donder en bliksem! Water, water everywhere and nary a drop to drink! Pass the bottle, please, and I'll take a nip or two. Great shots, maestro!

    Hi, Peer
    Sure you won't land on land with that seaplane?! That would be a change to land undercarriaged plane on water

    Fine foul weather captures of your Short seaplane Jan. Very realistic rain and lightening as well.
