This is a photo taken last summer over the Imperial Oil Kearl project in the oil sands. It is only a small part of the entire area but the amount of construction involved is mind boggling. This photo, along with others can be found on our WorkAbove Stock Photo website.
Smoke from forest fires in northeastern Alberta made their way down to Edmonton last week and I just happened to be photographing in the area. This is a shot of the downtown area from above the city airport.
An aerial shot of downtown from a distance really shows how Calgary has developed over the past few years.
Last week was not the best weather, but I took advantage of a flight for a wide-angle shot of the city with the finished Peace Bridge in the foreground.
Here’s a short video I made of the City of Calgary on Wednesday. I used the Canon 17mm T/S lens to give the buildings a normal perspective. The lens works best on a tripod where the camera is level so a helicopter is not an ideal situation but I think the results are interesting and a little different than if I had used a straight wide angle lens.
