KAP 2008-16: Jacques-Cartier Park, Hull/Gatineau, Québec. March 29, 2008.

Jacques Cartier Park is found in Hull/Gatineau Québec at the foot of the Alexandra Bridge which crosses to the National Gallery of Canada on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River. Also at the foot of the bridge on the Quebec side is the Museum of Civilization. Jacques Cartier Park is one of a number of sites in the Ottawa area that hosts the Winterlude festivities. There is also a small marina and docks and a pier from which a number of the Ottawa River boat tour companies operate from. These pictures were taken from a camera rig suspended below a kite (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).
