Seven of my Pinhey’s Point photographs selected by Getty Images

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.

A Winter Walk by the Ottawa River

I’m fortunate to live a few minutes walk from the Ottawa River just west of Westboro Beach. I often head there with my camera when light or weather conditions present an interesting opportunity. I went to the river on New Year’s Eve, prompted by huge globs of snowflakes falling from the sky in the hope of capturing some action blurring of falling snow. By the time I got out there the conditions had changed so that plan was off, but I was thankful to have been prompted to get outside because the conditions were still quite nice in other ways.

This first image was taken on the way to the river. The trail to the right is a bike path in the summer. The trail to the left is a short cut taken primarily by dog walkers and people heading to and from the Dominion Transitway station.

The river is frozen over now as we enter the coldest time of the winter season here in Ottawa. Snow levels are still lower than one would expect but there is still lots of time for more. The tree in this image and several others has been photographed many times by me. It is the point of the shoreline that is more or less closest to my home.

Here’s another shot including the same tree but a bit further away and including a nice clump of freeze-dried cattails.

Run off from city of Ottawa streets makes it into the Ottawa River through a number of storm sewer outlets. In the winter, road salt may be included in the flow. In summer, soap from car washing, pesticide runoff from lawn treatments, … In the distance is the same tree shown above.

Not far from Westboro beach, this tree stands just far enough from its neighbours to give a sense of isolation in a tightly framed photograph.

Sunset on Black Lake

Black Lake is near Perth in Eastern Ontario, about 1 hour from Ottawa. A group of fellow swimmers went for a late-in-the-year lake swim on October 20th, 2011. Fortunately it has been a long autumn and the water temperature was cold but forgiving. Not only that, it was a beautifully warm day above the surface so climbing out dripping wet was not the ordeal it might have been.

Later in the evening as we settled indoors for a meal and a beverage I had to dash back outside with my camera and tripod so as not to miss the magnificent sunset that was unfolding.

Westwood Park In Autumn, Ottawa, Ontario

Westwood Park in Autumn.

Westwood Park in Autumn.

Westwood Park is in the Carlingwood area in the west end of Ottawa, Ontario. It is at the intersection of Saville Row and Sherbourne Avenue. For a number of years I have remarked to myself on the beautiful fall colours and compositions that are available at the back end of the park. Finally this year I chose to ‘not’ drive past as I have done many times in previous years. These images were shot on November 1, 2011. This is late in the year for fall colour in our area. For the past few years autumn has seemed to last relatively long. No complaints. Nice weather, great colour and less winter.
