Eco photography wows on Rideau Canal – Arts & Entertainment – CBC News

Skaters gliding along Ottawa’s Rideau Canal skateway may find themselves coming to a halt to take in some spectacular nature photos this week.

The National Capital Commission is displaying the top photos from its Eco Art photo contest — an annual competition that solicits pictures from Canadian photographers ranging in age from 14 to 24 — on the skateway at the Dow’s Lake gallery.

The images feature Canadian wildlife, stunning coastlines and macro looks into the natural world, but the competition’s jury selected a serene, green forest scene captured by Ottawa’s Vineeth Sampathkumar, 19, as the winner.

“It was so green … the towering trees nearly covered up any skylight from entering,” Sampathkumar said of his picture, which won him $1,800.”

As soon as we entered the area, I knew I had to stop and take a few shots — something as beautiful as this should never be forgotten.”

The jury likely enjoyed the wonderful patten in Sampathkumar’s image. Two dark trees frame the edges of the photo, almost like curtains on a stage, while the vertical tree trunks create alternating light and dark vertical lines in the middle of the picture.
