‘Round the Point – on Silent Auction at Ottawa Riverkeeper Annual Public Meeting

Over the past several years I’ve helped out with a few photos and assignments for one of my favourite non-profit organizations, Ottawa Riverkeeper. They have reciprocated kindly by hanging five of my prints in the main reception area of their offices on Scott Street in Ottawa (above Trailhead). They have been hanging there for the past 18 months or so.

This evening one of those prints, a 24 x 36 framed canvas print called ‘Round the Point (shown below) will go on sale in one of the silent auctions at the Annual Public Meeting this evening September 23, 2014 at the Museum of Nature. This is a kite aerial photograph showing a sailboat at Pinhey’s Point on the Ottawa River.

I have recently been invited to display 5 photographs in the entranceway to the offices of the Ottawa Riverkeeper – ottawariverkeeper.ca
These are kite aerial phographs of the Ottawa River. This exhibit will be on display for a six month period, to the end of May.

The offices are above Trailhead on the third floor. So the next time you drop by the Trailhead store, go through the office entrance at the left and up to the third floor to room 301.

Here are the 5 images on display (captions courtesy of Alexandra Brett of the Ottawa Riverkeeper):

Chaudiere Falls aerial panorama including the former E.B. Eddy property, the city of Gatineau across the Ottawa River and the Parliament Buildings in the distance at the top right.

The view across the Ottawa River at the former E.B. Eddy paper mill shows the once-thundering Chaudière Falls tamed by dams and diversions. Over 60 m wide, and with a drop of 15 m, the falls powered the growth of Hull (seen across the river) and the City of Ottawa from 1800 onward. Two hydro stations still operate on Chaudière Falls.

Aerial panorama photograph of Lemieux Island and the Prince of Wales Railroad Bridge, Ottawa River.

The City of Ottawa draws its drinking water from the Ottawa River. The Lemieux Island Plant, seen here, is one of two water-treatment facilities run by the City. Ottawa’s drinking water is rated as some of the safest in the world, but damage to the river caused by sewage, pollution, dams and shoreline destruction put our drinking water at risk.

Rugged shoreline in winter at Deschenes Rapids near Aylmer, Quebec. This is the Ottawa River, near Ottawa, Ontario. This picture was taken from a camera rig suspended below a kite (Kite Aerial Photography - KAP).

Over 90% of a river’s life depends on the first few metres next to the shore, the area most likely to be damaged by riverside development. Maintaining natural shorelines with trees and shrubs – as seen here at Deschênes Rapids – helps stabilize banks and protect the river from pollutants and sediment in storm water.

The Ottawa River hosts 10 yacht clubs in the Ottawa-Gatineau region alone. Canoes, kayaks, power boats – even Olympic-class rowing shells – also ply the river’s many reaches and bays. Here, sailboats at Nepean Sailing Club in Ottawa’s west end quietly await their next regatta.

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).
