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 flew but the rig hovered just above ground level. After over an hour of time-wasting like this I decided to walk to middle of the sand bar, launch the gear there and then walk back towards my starting point. This achieved several minutes of lift in which I snapped a few dozen images before the gear drifted down to the ground. I repeated the exercise a couple of times. This way I did manage some nice images but with time having passed, the tide had risen considerably and most of the beautiful patchwork of sand and water was covered by the sea.
These photographs were taken using a remote-controlled camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).
