KAP 2015-8 – Montreal River, Ontario

This kite aerial photography (KAP) session took place about 3 days into my journey west which had been planned as a 30-day photographic trip to the west coast and return to Ottawa via the USA. However, a day or two after this I suffered intense back pain which I sustained while my friend, Ted Welch, drove the rest of the way to Victoria, B.C. Subsequently I had two long stays in hospital, 9 days in Victoria and 8 days in Ottawa following surgery. Needless to say, this was not how my summer had been planned.

Here we were at the Montreal River, near the community of Montreal River Harbour. The river empties into Lake Superior at the Twilight Resort. I thank Dan Miles of Twilight Resort for allowing us access to his property in the off-season in order to take these pictures. Unfortunately the wind dropped not long after I put the kite in the air. Only a few nice shots were captured during this time. I would have liked to get more altitude to get a better perspective of the river entering the lake and to get a shot with the whole resort in a single frame.

KAP 2015-1 – Lemieux Island, Ottawa

I have had a 16 month hiatus from kite aerial photography …. I’m happy to say “I’m Back”.

This first session of 2015 was actually a commission job and I’m not showing the client’s photos. The images I’ve put on my website are byproducts of the session resulting from the great location. Had there been time after the ‘job’ I would have done more shots of the bridge, the park and the Ottawa skyline. However, strong gusts kicked up that prevented me from doing more. Additional images from this session can be viewed on my website (link under the photograph).

The image here shows the Prince of Wales Railroad Bridge. There are two sections to the bridge. This is the section which goes from Lemieux Island at the bottom to the Quebec shore (Gatineau) to the left and top. The rail line runs approximately 200 metres on the eastern edge of the island and then there is a second section of bridge connecting the island to the Ontario shore (Ottawa). The bridge has been out of use for some time but is now under consideration as part of the developing LRT (Light Rail Transit) for the city.
