In autumn 2003 we spend some days on the German island Rügen. For Kite Aerial Photography I used my Canon A70 with the KAP-Rig # 5 and my Flow-Form kites. On that island there are a lot of KAP - motives so that I still will make some photos there.

|As we walked along the 1.4 km long mole to the lighthouse at the harbor entrance, I noticed that the wind blew strong but from all possible directions. Then we arrived on the end of the longest port mole of Europe and the FF # 1 didn't want to start at all. But then a gust of wind blew the kite in form, it starts and I could give line so that the kite flew beyond the port wall into the air. From there it get a little bit better and with line catch up and leave out I brought the kite higher and into a better wind so it flew more stably then.|
|I latched the kiteline into the carbine of the hold line and watched the flight of the FF after I had desisted approx. 70 meters of line. The kite was just fastened at the lighthouse, there came the police boat driven from sea to the port. The policemen looked interestedly on the lighthouse and the kite, however, passed without having achieved anything. After approx. 5 min., I still had mine equipment put together and the kite flew stably. So I put the camera in and gave line slowly.|
|After a few meters, the camera just had climbed over the port wall and floated over the water now, I had the first wind hole. Therefore I catch up the line with the camera and started once again. Then it went ok and with the higher climbing kite the linepull was stronger. After I had made quite a number of photos I catch up the kite and the camera to look to the pictures.|
