Lemieux Island - KAP 2009-8
Lemieux Island is in the Ottawa River just upstream from downtown Ottawa, Ontario. It is between the Chaudiere Falls and the Champlain Bridge. The island is the site of the Lemieux Island Water Purification Plant, currently under renovation. An old iron railway bridge, the Prince of Wales Bridge, crosses the river at Lemieux Island. It has been the focus of a contentious debate regarding a rapid transit system to bring Gatineau (Hull) commuters to downtown Ottawa.
These images were taken using a camera suspended from a kite line. This technique is known as Kite Aerial Photgraphy or KAP for short.
