Wired to the wind - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 11 November 2013 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

I have been on the road for a few weeks. Longer than expected, so not able to queue images during my absence. However, back now with what I hope are exciting shots to show you!

Coming up soon a series on the road to Hill End - in search of gold mining history.

I also travel from the inland to the coast for encounters with whales.

First up - I take my previous extreme sports series out on the water! A full strength southerly gives a perfect day for kite boarding at Kianga Beach.

Wow! What a unique and stunning capture!! I am so used to PoV's looking out toward the horizon between water and sky and here the shoreline is included as a beautiful backdrop!! 5*****

@Steven: Thanks, Steven. Yes, with the late sun illuminating the headland, I was seeking to include this backdrop in the framing of my shots.
