Over a 2 year period I was preparing a series of aerial images of Pinhey’s Point (near Ottawa) for an exhibit in the Pinhey’s Point museum last summer. One morning last spring I arrived and the wind was flat and the sky was overcast. I waited but a predicted change in weather didn’t happen. So much for believing the weather forecast. It was so still that the reflections in the Ottawa River were amazing. Fortunately I usually travel with both aerial gear and tripod gear so I switched mental gears. Seven of the images I took that morning were selected by Getty Images for exclusive licensing and they are now included in their catalogue. Here are a few of them.

This session took place at Pinhey’s Point which is a heritage property and public park on the Ottawa River, upstream from Ottawa and the community of Kanata, not far from the village of Dunrobin.
These low-level aerial images were taken from a camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).
