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.

New in my Getty Images portfolio:

I already had several images from this session selected by Getty Images but not this one. This became part of the catalogue as a result of a client request and a subsequent RTL, Request to License, through Flickr.com

KAP 2011-15 – Ottawa River Parkway at Westboro – October 29, 2011

I launched this session in the Westboro area of the Ottawa River, where Churchill Avenue almost touches the Ottawa River Parkway. I then walked along the shoreline as far as possible eastwards towards the Champlain Bridge. I could have gone closer if I was prepared to get my feet wet to get past a tree with the kite line. This was a relatively low-wind session where I used my autokap rig suspended below my FLED kite. Autokap stands for Automatic Kite Aerial Photography whereby a light weight camera rig is used with the capability to automatically shoot pictures at 8-10 second intervals after turning about 10 degrees between shots. The angle of the shot has to be set before launching. Therefore in this situation I do not have the benefit that I would normally have with my heavier fully remote-controlled rig where I can control pan and tilt and firing. I also do not get a video downlink to see if I have good composition or whether in fact I have even hit the target.

My goal with this session was to pick up some of the late autumn colours and to get a different angle on the Champlain Bridge to my previous attempts.

These low-level aerial images were taken from a camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).

Ottawa River in the late fall. Champlain Bridge is in the distance. It is December 1 and feeling quite cool so this could be considered winter except that we have no snow yet

The Ottawa River races under the Champlain Bridge. No snow on the ground yet. It is late this year. But it sure feels like winter.

It was still pretty early and overcast and thus quite dark out plus I added my polarizer to darken the scene even more and reduce light by about two more f stops (I don’t own a ND filter). The shutter was open 2 seconds at f22.
