A few more shots... from the scenic view.... coming down the highway, you could see like 20-30 kites in the sky...

A little further up the highway, looking back.... I also played around with some PSP affects on these shots....

I saw that for the first time last year in Cape Cod! It's the neatest thing! You captured it well.

My pictures aren't so good though.

Isn't it amazing when they catch air?!

Yea... they were pretty amazing to watch.... a few of them caught some serious air! I was using mu 70-200mm lens and they were still a ways out... I had to crop my shots in quite a bit, and there were several that didnt come out well enough to crop (especially one that was way up in the air! grrrrrr LOL)

That is really cool. I don't think I'd try it, but cool nonetheless. Really great photos Trish!

That's ok... I've already been skydiving.... twice :D That kite looks like a 1/4 parachute anyway LOL, and, with the water for landing - well - I'll be fine :happy Even if it takes a few tries to get it right LOL
