Meandering with camera…
Not too windy to go fly a kite. Some weird ground mist swirling here and there. Other spots were entirely clear.
To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.
― Hans Christian Andersen, The Fairy Tale of My Life: An Autobiography
It has been a really hard day, your ocean photos were just perfect…thank you.
Very glad you enjoyed them. Sorry about the hard day.
Fabulous shot, Gunta. I guess it was too windy for me out there, 😕
Thanks, Sylvia. Amazingly enough this was not a very windy day. From what I’ve observed the kites seem to do better when the wind isn’t too rough.
Another great image! Looks like fun!
He had a bit of trouble keeping that kite up, but he kept trying. 😉
Super shot Gunta, a great pose you caught there!
Thank you, Chilli. Love it when folks or gulls pose so nicely for me. 😉
This image reminds me of a time years ago sitting on the shore in SF, watching the colorful kites floating overhead. You know just what to do to put a smile on my face. 🙂
It sure makes me happy to put that smile there, too.
Breathtaking is the word.
yep the kite makes it for definite especially the tension on the strings and relationship with the Kite flyer… looks like a gorgeous day
I thought it was rather nice of the kite flyer to cooperate in that way. It was a nice day, though I tend to prefer the moody ones. Come to think of it, I’ll take any day at the beach except when the nasty winds sting your face with sand blasts.
Stunning, Gunta! Light, colors, lightness…everything! Reminds me strongly of one of my favourites books “The Kite Runner”…somehow 🙂
I enjoyed the book, too, though it was rather dark. The guy flying the kite almost looks like he’s dancing a ballet…
superb! what a beautiful picture
Thank you for the kind words.
I like the splash of color that the kite provides.
Lord knows there wasn’t much color otherwise.
I am enjoying flying the kite with him. Lovely shot.
Glad to hear it.
This image is magical! It’s definitely a favorite of mine. The tones, the softness, the graceful kite flyer and that swirling kite…so dream like. If I were you, I’d print this big and hang it where I could gaze at it every day!
I probably shouldn’t admit to this, but I almost didn’t post this one because it didn’t quite do it for me. It never ceases to amaze me when other folks like one of my shots better than I do. That ever happen to you? Perhaps it looks better than it did in real life and that original feeling is what stuck with me.
I don’t think I’ll ever get over all of those sea stacks…there is just something so remarkable about them, to me, anyway. Very nice photo, Gunta.
Thanks, Scott. The stacks are pretty amazing, especially when the tide is out and folks can walk and play amongst them.
Yes, amazing is a good word for them, especially when the tide is out and we can see them more clearly…..
Totally fabulous. The bookend boulders around the kite are terrific, it’s magical. The figure on the other end is so beautifully shaped.
Funny too, kites. When I was at Garapatta a couple of weeks ago I found one on the cliff trail, obviously abandoned and wind-wounded, and took it home and tacked it to my patio wall. It’s a nice reminder of the day and the kite flying days, though I worry a bit some child is longing for it though I saved and honor it’s purpose.
The boulders on this beach are marvelous, especially at low tide when folks can walk amongst them. What a cute story about the lost kite you found. All’s well that it found itself a good home! 😉
I love the movement in this one…..very nice
Thanks Ms D…
Kites are magical. Always enjoy watching them.
Seems like they bring out the kid in the adults, too. 🙂
Quite mystical with the swirling water. I love it 🙂
Thanks so much, Jo.
Such a happy image – always love watching kite flyers, a primal urge to interact with the wind.
It seems lots of folks enjoy flying the on the beach, but this was the first time I managed a good shot of both the kite and the person flying it.
This one is breathtaking..
Glad you (apparently) enjoyed it, though breathing is good! 😉
