This was my third kite aerial photography session at Pinhey’s Point. The Pinhey’s Point Foundation is a group which has indicated an interest in my photography with the prospect of doing a demonstration and photo display next summer. Thus, I have incentive to return from time to time. This time I went with the hope for some fall colour remaining and early enough in the day to have the front of the building (river-facing side) illuminated with morning light. Being late in the year with the sun in the south east, 10:00 a.m. was not early enough as the front was already in shadow. However, the lighting was diffused enough this day that the shadows were not too harsh and the results were pretty good in my opinion.
I was accompanied during this session by friend and photographer Bruce Amos. Together we represented 2/3 of our Photo Boyz trio. Hey Murray, next time maybe?
Pinhey’s Point is on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River, just upstream from Ottawa (Kanata) near the small village of Dunrobin. It is an 88 acre heritage site administered by the City of Ottawa. For more information visit the Pinhey’s Point website.
These images were taken from a camera suspended below a kite (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).
The kite line and the photographer are visible in several images.
