New member Into general Photography and Getting into KAP Kite Aerial Photography

Hi to everyone
Im Mark.
I have been taking photos for 35 years..... well back in the days of film. Like many have made the transition to Digital photography. Have had several Digital cameras. Last year I bought A pentax WG 3 waterproof camera, which I used while I snorkeled on the Great Barrier Reef. It did very well, some shots are so clear and sharp, you'd swear that youre not underwater!!!
Since then Ive been sending the little pentax up on a kite's line. Using the very useful built in intervalometer, I set it to take a shot every 10 secs and up shes goes. Getting some amazing and very unexpected shots. :-)

Welcome! Those are some amazing photos! I've never heard of this kind of photography before. Can you show some of the equipment (kites) you use?
