Summer Infrared View of Ottawa by 

This view of the Ottawa River was taken in Infrared from atop the bluffs behind Parliament hill on a sunny and cloudy July day. It is a panoramic composite of 3 frames rendered as a faux cyanotype (duotone). From left to right you will see the city of Gatineau (Hull) in Quebec, the (name?) interprovincial bridge, the National Art Gallery and the spires of the historical (name?) Cathedral and the bluffs of Major Hill Park in Ottawa.

The dashed streaks in the river are the ghosts of a single tour boat passing through the frames.

Taken with a Canon G2 with an R72 Infrared filter and a tripod shooting 3 frames at ISO100, f8, 8 sec each.

Max is a semi-retired 60+ boomer science guy, currently living in Ottawa, Canada’s capital. Growing up with photography and art in his family, he was self-taught ever since he developed his own films at the age of 13. “I do it for the sheer joy of creating an image regardless of whether it pleases, stuns or provokes”, he says. He likes to experiment and is currently exploring pinhole, Infra-red, panoramic, and high dynamic range photography.
