Chaudiere falls is in the middle of the river in the foreground of the aerial skyline photographs of Ottawa/Gatineau. The Prince of Wales Bridge is not currently in use, and you can see that by the snow on the tracks where only people and dogs have...

This session was planned to take advantage of the late afternoon light shining on the Ottawa Skyline. The view is always great when driving along the Ottawa River Parkway towards the city over the rise at the level of Lemieux Island and the Bayview Transitway Station. So I made the goal of this outing to make low-level aerial images of the nicely lit skyline with the Ottawa River Parkway providing lead-in lines. The wind was great for the FLED with fully remote rig. I took advantage of the location to also take shots of the Bayview Transitway Station, Lemieux Island...

KAP 2008-11: Chaudière Falls from Parc des Portageurs. February 27, 2008.

Chaudiere Falls city of Ottawa E.B. Eddy Gatineau Hull industry KAP Kite Aerial Photography Ottawa Ottawa River Parc des Portageurs river snow

The objective of this KAP outing (Kite Aerial Photography) was to photograph the Chaudière Falls from the Québec side of the Ottawa River. The Chaudière Falls are in the middle of the river, and distanced from public access by the river itself as well as private industry, primarily E.B. Eddy. Besides the out-of-the-ordinary overhead perspective that Kite Aerial Photography provides, it is also an excellent means to get closer to distant subjects. This was also an opportunity to get a unique perspective on the city core. The kite and rig were launched from Parc des Portageurs in Gatineau (what is...
