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 second intervals after turning about 10 degrees between shots. The angle of the shot has to be set before launching. Therefore in this situation I do not have the benefit that I would normally have with my heavier fully remote-controlled rig where I can control pan and tilt and firing. I also do not get a video downlink to see if I have good composition or whether in fact I have even hit the target.
My goal with this session was to pick up some of the late autumn colours and to get a different angle on the Champlain Bridge to my previous attempts.
