PHOTO: Stittsville from the sky

John Danson took this photo. He was flying from Ottawa to Calgary on the morning of February 19th. He looked out his window during take-off and realized they were going right over Stittsville, so he quickly took a picture on his phone.

Thanks to Alison Danson for sharing this incredible perspective of our community. She writes: “My husband, John Danson, was flying from Ottawa to Calgary on the morning of February 19th. He looked out his window during take-off and realized they were going right over Stittsville, so he quickly took a picture on his phone, thinking it would be fun if he could get a shot of our house to show our son. It wasn’t until I was going through our photos yesterday that I realized he had actually captured a perfect picture of Stittsville in its entirety!”

PHOTO: Iber Road from above at night

Here’s a different perspective on Iber Road. This photo from Front Page Media Group was taken at around 9:00pm on Tuesday night. It’s looking north towards Hazeldean Road. The auto park across from Scotiabank Place is all lit up in the upper-left corner, and the Ottawa River and Gatineau Hills are in the distance in the upper right.

Leon Switzer from Front Page Media Group says that the photo was part of a test shot for their new DJI Inspire 1 drone. He wanted to test the camera quality in lower light in a safe environment.
