Aqua Cityscapes – Miami South Beach

edited April 23 in General
Aqua Ocean, tall buildings and a bit of white sand…..make for a good Kite Aerial Photography (KAP) location.

Miami – South Beach is one of my favorite places to fly kites and take pictures.

Beaches with beautiful white sand, aqua water, tall buildings, an active harbor / port, a few sharks in the water (and on the beach) all mixed together with a few drone drivers….. makes for an interesting day with a kite string (or Stratospool) in your hand!

The drone flyers buzzed my kite a few times, even after giving them a friendly warning of possible entanglement with my kite line. I was flying with 150 lbs. Dyneema (thin) kite line which is hard to see. Past testing of drone vs. kite gave me confidence that my kite and KAP rig were at low risk of loss….not so much for the drone drivers….. In the end – just a few close calls. No impacts.

Enjoy a few photos in this post and in this flickr album.
