Mom used to say: "Write about what you know." That meant stay away from fiction and stick to science. However, I am very ignorant about science!
So I became an observer, complete with failings as well. However, on Saturday, the snow had stopped and the skies cleared - why plural "skies"?
How many can you count?
The skier attached to the blue traction kite did some big jumps but I don't think I managed to capture any - too busy watching. (From our balcony.)
For contrast and as a comparison, the next shots were taken in October 2011 with the previous Pentax but same zoom.
I was on the beach looking north - so 90 degrees left of the direction from the balcony.
The flier was about 1km away in the previous 3 shots. In the next shots , he is only 3m away:
The kites are approx 5m by 2m.
Still looks like fun - from the safe position on the balcony!
Would I like to try it?
Wise Old Bird !
