Stranger 4/100 - Bob I was out by the Ottawa River near home again on a morning walk, photographing the fall colour. I turned a corner on the shoreline and there was Bob and his bird scope on a tripod. For several days he and some birder colleagues had been tracking the movements of a Western Grebe which was visiting our part of the Ottawa River to feed before continuing its migration. My 70-300mm lens was at home but it wouldn't have helped - the Western Grebe was about 100 metres from the opposite shoreline of the river. Bob allowed...

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...

I launched this session in the Westboro area of the Ottawa River, where Churchill Avenue almost touches the Ottawa River Parkway. I then walked along the shoreline as far as possible eastwards towards the Champlain Bridge. I could have gone closer if I was prepared to get my feet wet to get past a tree with the kite line. This was a relatively low-wind session where I used my autokap rig suspended below my FLED kite. Autokap stands for Automatic Kite Aerial Photography whereby a light weight camera rig is used with the capability to automatically shoot pictures at 8-10...
