Photo Boyz at Mooney’s Bay

My previous Photo Boyz piece was about the 2nd outing by our threesome. I’ve decided to backtrack and cover outing number one for the sake of completeness and hopefully we will sporadically move forward from here with further sessions. Photo Boyz includes Bruce Amos, Murray McComb and myself.

Our first time out was on September 17, 2009 and it preceded one of our monthly beverage nights. Murray proposed that we join him two hours beforehand at Mooney’s Bay Beach in Ottawa where he was going to experiment with sunset action shots of kayaker John Ferguson. Bruce and I tagged along and tried to get action of the action shooter. I took my kite aerial gear but as luck would have it conditions did not favour getting the camera anywhere near the subject so I moved on to other stuff.

Here is a selection of the shots we took that evening.

KAP 2008-32: Victoria Island, Canadian Rivers Day, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. June 8, 2008

This session was planned in order to take pictures of the Canadian Rivers Day – 4th Ottawa Riverkeeper Celebration. This is a guided paddle on the Ottawa River from Victoria Island to Petrie Island. I contribute photography, both aerial and on-the-ground images, as a volunteer with Ottawa Riverkeeper. More information regarding the Ottawa Riverkeeper can be found at ottawariverkeeper.ca. Several of these images have been published on the Ottawa Riverkeeper Website as part of their Canadian Rivers Day report.

These images were taken in the vicinity of Victoria Island on the Ottawa River, near downtown Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. After the guided paddle left the area I continued to photograph the surrounding area. These photographs were taken using kite aerial photography (KAP).
