Aerial photos of the Ottawa River on display at the offices of Ottawa Riverkeeper

I have recently been invited to display 5 photographs in the entranceway to the offices of the Ottawa Riverkeeper – ottawariverkeeper.ca
These are kite aerial phographs of the Ottawa River. This exhibit will be on display for a six month period, to the end of May.

The offices are above Trailhead on the third floor. So the next time you drop by the Trailhead store, go through the office entrance at the left and up to the third floor to room 301.

Here are the 5 images on display (captions courtesy of Alexandra Brett of the Ottawa Riverkeeper):

Chaudiere Falls aerial panorama including the former E.B. Eddy property, the city of Gatineau across the Ottawa River and the Parliament Buildings in the distance at the top right.

The view across the Ottawa River at the former E.B. Eddy paper mill shows the once-thundering Chaudière Falls tamed by dams and diversions. Over 60 m wide, and with a drop of 15 m, the falls powered the growth of Hull (seen across the river) and the City of Ottawa from 1800 onward. Two hydro stations still operate on Chaudière Falls.

Aerial panorama photograph of Lemieux Island and the Prince of Wales Railroad Bridge, Ottawa River.

The City of Ottawa draws its drinking water from the Ottawa River. The Lemieux Island Plant, seen here, is one of two water-treatment facilities run by the City. Ottawa’s drinking water is rated as some of the safest in the world, but damage to the river caused by sewage, pollution, dams and shoreline destruction put our drinking water at risk.

Rugged shoreline in winter at Deschenes Rapids near Aylmer, Quebec. This is the Ottawa River, near Ottawa, Ontario. This picture was taken from a camera rig suspended below a kite (Kite Aerial Photography - KAP).

Over 90% of a river’s life depends on the first few metres next to the shore, the area most likely to be damaged by riverside development. Maintaining natural shorelines with trees and shrubs – as seen here at Deschênes Rapids – helps stabilize banks and protect the river from pollutants and sediment in storm water.

Sailboats at Rest - Aerial view of sailboats at Nepean Sailing Club at Dick Bell Park in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Cropped from a larger image.  This picture was taken from a camera rig suspended below a kite (Kite Aerial Photography - KAP).

The Ottawa River hosts 10 yacht clubs in the Ottawa-Gatineau region alone. Canoes, kayaks, power boats – even Olympic-class rowing shells – also ply the river’s many reaches and bays. Here, sailboats at Nepean Sailing Club in Ottawa’s west end quietly await their next regatta.

Docks and Ice – Nepean Sailing Club

It was a nice day today for a trip to the Nepean Sailing Club at Dick Bell Park … at least for photographers not sailors.

Late winter/early spring can seem a bit dreary for photography with the dirty ice and dead grass poking through. I decided to make this 3rd aerial outing to Nepean Sailing Club, figuring that it would be a good day for shapes and forms from the air. I had seen the docks poking through the ice last week while driving out to Kanata.

Here are a couple of the shots I took today. You can see more in the KAP 2010-2 gallery on my website.

KAP 2008-30: Nepean Sailing Club, Dick Bell Park, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. May 24, 2008.

Dick Bell Park is at the west end of the city of Ottawa near the community of Crystal Beach, just west of Andrew Hayden Park, and is home to the Nepean Sailing Club. The location used to be a larger bay (Crystal Bay) but the marina and park, as well as Andrew Hayden Park, was created with landfill. The artificial peninsula protects the marina and docks. There is a lighthouse at the end of the peninsula. A club house, parking area, and boat storage area has also been developed on the site.
These pictures were taken from a camera rig suspended below a kite (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).
See KAP 2008-14 for a winter session of Kite Aerial Photography at this location.
