KAP 2008-14: Nepean Sailing Club, Dick Bell Park, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. March 22, 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 photographs were taken with a camera suspended below a kite (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).
