Ottawa Magazine Champlain Bridge Photo

Further to my earlier post, Ottawa Magazine also licensed a second aerial image of the Champlain Bridge which they placed at the centrefold of the same May 2014 issue. This is an aerial panorama created by stitching several images taken during the photo session.

I have included the bridge in a number of kite aerial photography sessions. From this session back in 2008 I have additional images that can be viewed in the Champlain Bridge and Island Park Drive – KAP 2008-51 gallery on my website.

Back to the land of snow and ice after a wonderful month of February in Australia. Recently I have made a couple of attempts to KAP the Wakefield bridge without any success so a couple of weeks have elapsed without succeeding with any kite aerial photography. Finally a nice day arrived to do some work with the Parliament buildings and the still frozen landscape. Here are some of the shots from this session.

The Ontario side of the Ottawa River at the Deschênes Rapids is the location of several features: the community of Britannia, the Britannia Water Purification Plant (serving the city of Ottawa), the Britannia Yacht Club, and Mud Lake which has become an urban wildlife watching location. Not too far upstream is Britannia Beach, a popular recreation area. The town of Deschênes, which shares the name with the rapids, is on the Quebec side of the river.

KAP 2013-20 – Spencerville Mill, Spencerville, Ontario – May 1, 2013

Spencerville is a small village in eastern Ontario, less than an hour’s drive from Ottawa. It is just north of Prescott and adjacent to Highway 416. It sits on the South Nation River.

I went to Spencerville for the first time about a month prior to this session. I was delivering three prints which I had entered in a juried photography competition/exhibit at the ArtScene Gallery located on Spencer Street (the main street) in Spencerville. Passing the Spencerville Mill, which I had checked out first on Google Earth, I decided that this was a good place for a KAP session. After the delivery I tried to fly my ROK but the wind was very strong and gusty (perfect direction though) so I had to abandon without having attached the camera.

When the photography show ended (I received 2nd place for Walk on the Beach by the way) I went back to retrieve my prints along with friend, and part-time KAP assistant, Ted Welch. You can barely make us out in the second image (and images 4 & 5 on my website), where Ted is playing with a resident’s dog. I believe the KAP assistant’s job description says “… while keeping distracting or dangerous interference away from the photographer”. The wind was much better this time except blowing from the south and parallel to the river which would have been my second favourite choice. Nevertheless the KAP session went ahead using my FLED kite and the results are quite worthwhile. There is another angle of the mill that I would like to try which requires wind from the west or alternatively getting access to private property on the opposite side of the river. The location also warrants summer and winter aerial photography.
