KAP 2013-3 – Cape Woolamai Beach, Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia

A recent four week trip to Australia provided several opportunities for kite aerial photography. This second session was in on Cape Woolamai Beach on Phillip Island. We were en route to watch the Penguin Parade where every evening hundreds of the smallest penguins in the world, Little Blue Penguins (aka Fairy Penguins) come out of the water and head for burrows on shore.

Cape Woolamai Beach was mainly a sand beach but there was some rocky shoreline interspersed as one approached the end of the cape. There were also sand dunes that evolved into cliffs the further you went towards the end of the cape. This was one of my favourite KAP sessions from the holiday and I was really happy with the landscapes and the straight down aerial abstracts that I was fortunate to obtain in the camera.

KAP 2013-2 – Albert Park, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

A recent four week trip to Australia provided several opportunities for kite aerial photography. This first session was in Melbourne at Albert Park near the St. Kilda area of the city. I chose the location because it was near our hotel in St. Kilda and I anticipated skyline shots of the City of Melbourne with the large pond in the foreground. Unknown to me at the time is that fact that this park is periodically the site of Formula 1 racing, the Australian Grand Prix. Organizers were in the process of setting up the “Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit” and I was able to shoot some of the fixtures while I was there. Albert Park is also the site of several cricket pitches and soccer fields as well as a golf course.

Beaver Pond Reflections, Gatineau Park

Beaver Pond Reflections, Gatineau Park, Quebec.

Beaver Pond Reflections, Gatineau Park, Quebec.

There are a number of beaver ponds and swamps in Gatineau Park and interesting images abound if you are prepared for a hike and often some bushwhacking. The place I visited during this session I had discovered while hiking with a friend a few years ago. With the goal then being the hike, not the photography, I made a mental note of the location. Finally I returned this fall and the scenery was as rewarding as I had expected.

At this site there is a series of three ponds; however the top pond is more of a drained swamp. It seems this pond is not being maintained by the beavers unless park officials are directing/interfering with their developments. The bottom two ponds are smaller, relatively free of deadwood standing out of the ponds and closely lined with trees. The reflections as you can see are amazing.

WARNING: Beaver habitat can be dangerous. Do not be guilty of admiring the landscape and scenery without paying attention to your footwork. This is not to be taken lightly. Why? Although the typical image of beaver activity is large tree stumps and fallen tree trunks, for every large tree felled there are dozens of 1″ to 2″ diameter saplings chopped at about 18″ in length and chiseled to a fine point. The rest of the sapling has been hauled away and only the spike remains. Even in open terrain they are well enough camouflaged, but in typical beaver terrain where new trees, grasses and shrubs have grown over, these spikes are frequently hidden from view. You are likely to trip on one and impale your body or your face on the next. Why so morbid? Well I had a close call myself a couple of years ago. I now try to practice a policy of taking 30 or so steps with my eyes glued to the ground, stopping, and then looking around for appealing shots or where to go next.

KAP 2008-37: St. Louis Art Museum, St. Louis, Missouri – July 7, 2008

My tour of the midwest USA took me through the St. Louis Missouri. My first stop was at the Gateway Arch where I kept my photography at ground level as the wind conditions were inappropriate. Permissions might have been an obstacle as well but I had no reason to ask as the wind was almost zero. That same afternoon I went to Forest Park, and after doing a fairly extensive visit with my SLR and tripod I realized the wind had picked up so I returned to the Art Museum to do some aerial work. Both the Museum and the Emerson Grand Basin in front proved to be interesting KAP subjects.

These photos were taken from a camera rig suspended below a kite (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).
