A recent four week trip to Australia provided several opportunities for kite aerial photography. Hervey Bay was the town where we stayed to enable a day trip to Fraser Island. Hervey Bay itself is quite a nice place and would have merited a longer stay. I did get time to have a KAP session at the Hervey Bay Boat Club before leaving. The boat club is in Urangan Harbour. This was my 5th kite aerial photography session of this trip to Australia. These photographs were taken using a remote-controlled camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography - KAP). ...

  A recent four week trip to Australia provided several opportunities for kite aerial photography. Byron Bay is one place we stayed for a few days. It is a community that seems to attract hippie wannabees, both young and old. It's a nice place to visit but for us the weather was, shall we say, mixed. My fourth Australian KAP session was at Tallow Beach, not far from Byron Bay but on the opposite side of Cape Byron and the Byron Lighthouse. Cape Byron, by the way, is the easternmost point in Australia. I went to Tallow Beach with the...

  A recent four week trip to Australia provided several opportunities for kite aerial photography. Brisbane was one of our stopovers as this is where one of our daughters is living. If you live in Brisbane and you like to travel, check out the Flight Centre, Ascot for all your travel needs (plug for my daughter who is a sales consultant there). This third Australian KAP session was at New Farm Park in Brisbane. The location provide good cityscapes of the Brisbane skyline, plus an opportunity to look for graphic designs and abstracts in the garden bed arrangements. The were...

  A recent four week trip to Australia provided several opportunities for kite aerial photography. This second session was in on Cape Woolamai Beach on Phillip Island. We were en route to watch the Penguin Parade where every evening hundreds of the smallest penguins in the world, Little Blue Penguins (aka Fairy Penguins) come out of the water and head for burrows on shore. Cape Woolamai Beach was mainly a sand beach but there was some rocky shoreline interspersed as one approached the end of the cape. There were also sand dunes that evolved into cliffs the further you went...

  A recent four week trip to Australia provided several opportunities for kite aerial photography. This first session was in Melbourne at Albert Park near the St. Kilda area of the city. I chose the location because it was near our hotel in St. Kilda and I anticipated skyline shots of the City of Melbourne with the large pond in the foreground. Unknown to me at the time is that fact that this park is periodically the site of Formula 1 racing, the Australian Grand Prix. Organizers were in the process of setting up the "Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit" and...
