KAP 2008-17: Mooney’s Bay, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. April 6, 2008.

Mooney’s Bay Beach and Park on the Rideau River during the spring thaw. The terrain is quite flat here and with having had very deep snow this year the area was essentially almost a metre deep in slush. It was quite the wet experience, especially when crossing the open area near the small bridges. The bridges were amongst trees, so to avoid kite line tangles I had to cross the buried streams themselves, sinking down through the slush to water level. The things we do for a photograph. These photographs were taken with Kite Aerial Photography (KAP).

  1. Hello,
    I am a grade 7 student and doing currently a research about Mooney’s Bay park. I made many research to try to find why the park was called by “Mooney’s Bay”, but couldn’t find any answer. If any one can help me, it would be gratly appreciated. Thank you!
