The images in this post and in the related gallery on my website were taken during World Wide KAP Weekend which occurred May 2-5, 2008. This event was organized by the international Kite Aerial Photography community. More information about this group can be found in the Kite Aerial Photography photo pool on Flickr as well as the KAP Discussion Forum.
A book which includes 4 images from each participant has been published and is available at blurb.com
This was the second of 4 locations that I chose to photograph during this event (See also KAP 2008-21, KAP 2008-23, KAP 2008-24).
This session took place at the Britannia Yacht Club on the Ottawa River, Ottawa, Ontario. This is at Deschênes Rapids, on the opposite side of the Ottawa River to the community of Deschênes, where KAP 2008-15 was done. As it is still early May, the snow has only just disappeared and the boats are still in their winter storage locations. Some have been uncovered and owners are starting to do their spring tune-ups and upkeep. Several owners have parked their cars beside their boats.
