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.

KAP 2008-34: Victoria Island, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. June 14, 2008

I returned to the Victoria Island area after 1 week as I was asked to try to get some pictures of a wedding taking place on the small island between Victoria Island and the Ontario shoreline. I have not included any of the wedding photos as they are private but I have included here some of the general area shots that I took that day. These photographs were taken using kite aerial photography (KAP).

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).
