I took these last weekend, I was surprised this thing could fly, It was interesting to watch. I was bummed that I blew the lift off, it would of been nice to have a shot of it a few feet off the water. But I was glad he circled around for me to get the fly by.

Great shots! I've never seen one of those before. I've seen a number of ultralites but none with an inflatable raft on the bottom. I would think the weight of the raft adds a great deal of stress to the rigging.

I guess I am going to have to go up to the Seattle area and spend a couple days there. I've been across the bridges on Lake Washington many times but never paid any attention to the boat traffic.

That is so cool! A flying boat! The third shot is my favorite with the yellow of the sails so bright. I enjoyed this one very much! Very nice focus also!
