  I had greater expectations for this session but nevertheless ended up with a couple of nice images. When I arrived at this location the tidal flats extended for hundreds of meters. It was a patchwork of red sands and blue puddles, complemented by the light blue of the sky and a hint of the Confederation Bridge in the distance. The wind had been strong further along the coast but for some reason was dead here. I played around and teased my Levitation Light Delta kite into the air and attached my lowest weight rig, designed for autoKAP. The kite...

  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...

I did two kite aerial photography sessions several days apart at opposite ends of the beach named Playa El Palmar, Ixtapa, Mexico. Playa El Palmar is the nearest beach to Casa Candiles, the Bed and Breakfast where we stayed during our vacation. The B&B is about 10 minutes walk from the public access near the south end of the beach (beside the Barcelo Hotel). There are no small hotels or B&Bs on the beach as you will see from the photographs. The buildings are large hotels and condominium complexes. These images were obtained using a camera suspended below a kite...

While on vacation in Ixtapa, Mexico, the owner of our Bed & Breakfast, Casa Candiles, took us on a couple of field trips. One of these was to Barra de Potosi, about a 1/2 hour's drive south along the Pacific Coast from Ixtapa - Zihuatanejo. We planned to have a few hours there doing beach stuff and having lunch at one of the many beachside restaurants. It gave me time to fly kites as well as explore with my SLR. I did the terrestrial camera work first because I wanted to check out where would be best for catching the...

A Winter Walk by the Ottawa River

I'm fortunate to live a few minutes walk from the Ottawa River just west of Westboro Beach. I often head there with my camera when light or weather conditions present an interesting opportunity. I went to the river on New Year's Eve, prompted by huge globs of snowflakes falling from the sky in the hope of capturing some action blurring of falling snow. By the time I got out there the conditions had changed so that plan was off, but I was thankful to have been prompted to get outside because the conditions were still quite nice in other ways....
