I have done a number of aerial photography sessions at Pinhey's Point. I've also had occasions doing "terrestrial" ground-level images. So this gallery is a mix of those shots plus a few of the aerial shots to give an overall impression of the heritage property and park. Note the links below that lead to more extensive aerial coverage of Pinhey's Point.
The scenery, the solitude, the atmosphere ... these are all good reasons for visiting Pinhey's Point. However my further incentive in being there is that the Pinhey's Point Foundation is facilitating my having a photographic exhibit there during the 2012 season. There may also be an opportunity to particpate in one of their activity weekends by demonstrating kite aerial photography to visitors. I hope the wind is blowing but nevertheless I'm sure I can convey the message by showing the equipment.
Pinhey's Point is on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River, just upstream from Ottawa (Kanata) near the small village of Dunrobin. It is an 88 acre heritage site administered by the City of Ottawa. For more information visit the Pinhey's Point website
Access to the point itself is restricted for environmental reasons. I winter though, when the ice is solid, you can snowshoe or ski around the point. Therefore some of these photographs were taken from vantage points that would only be accessible by boat in the summer.
Here are links to the galleries containing my kite aerial photography sessions:
