Back to the land of snow and ice after a wonderful month of February in Australia. Recently I have made a couple of attempts to KAP the Wakefield bridge without any success so a couple of weeks have elapsed without succeeding with any kite aerial photography. Finally a nice day arrived to do some work with the Parliament buildings and the still frozen landscape. Here are some of the shots from this session.

These photographs were taken using a remote-controlled camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).
The goal of this outing was to take photographs the Parliament Buildings from midway across the river using Kite Aerial Photography (KAP), by launching the kite and camera equipment from the shoreline in front of the Museum of Civilization in Hull (Gatineau), Québec. The wind was unexpectedly blowing parallel to the shore instead of at right angles and consequently the views are not as “near” as anticipated. However it did provide an opportunity to photograph the Museum itself from a close angle. KAP colleague Matt Young was also KAPing at the same time. Here are a few of the images from this outing with a view from the Québec side of the Ottawa River from above the grounds of the Museum of Civilization.
