KAP 2009-25 – Wilson Lane near Fairfield, Idaho – August 20, 2009

These images are from a Kite Aerial Photography session conducted two years ago as I toured across the United States.

In Idaho I met with PokyTom (Flickr name for Tom Gautier) and we camped, KAPped and photographed our way through the Sawtooth National Recreation Area in the heart of Idaho.

I quickly put a few of the images on Flickr at that time (either while on the road or just when I got home, I can’t remember) to share with my KAPper connections in the Flickr KAP group. I had never created a gallery on my website until now. I have also added some more of the better images from the day.

These are images from my third successful KAP. This set took place near an old schoolhouse or church (not sure which), off Hwy 20 (Wilson Lane) about 5 miles west of Fairfield, Idaho.

These shots were taken with a camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).

KAP 2011-14 – Shouldice Berry Farm – October 27, 2011

Aerial photography taken during a session at Shouldice Berry Farm on Richmond Road in Ottawa.

The objective of this session was to obtain aerial photographs of the junction of Highway 417 and 416. Uncooperative winds, poor light and misjudgement of required gear meant that the results were limited in scope and the lighting was a bit flat. This would be worth of a second attempt in the future. I`d like to get higher and perhaps a bit further away to obtain some shots of the whole junction. Nevertheless I am pretty happy with the results all things considered.

I had very few shots taken after trying my fully remote gear for over an hour. It was not until I put autokap equipment on the line that I managed to get any results at all. I may have had more success with remote controlled gear with my Fled kite. I was using a 6 1/2 foot ROK which required stronger winds which was a misjudgement on my part. I had the Fled in the car and I should have gone for it sooner but when the time came to change gear I knew the light was failing and the return trip to where it was parked would have been a waste of time. Since I had autokap in my bag I quickly changed it and managed about 10 minutes before I lost enough wind for that too. Again, the Fled would have worked better but the light by now was very poor. All of the images in this gallery came from the 10 minutes of autokap.

Ironically, I normally carry more than one kite when venturing far from the car. I blew it this time.

These low-level aerial images were taken from a camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).
