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.

|At the big beaches on the island
Rügen always pines are between the dunes and the street. If the
wind comes from country side then, it is beautifully in a sheltered
place that way below on the beach. But it is unfortunately badly to
start a kite in that wind conditions. So I had my difficulties here,
since no wind was absolutely behind the pines on the beach, although a
strong breeze blew at the other side. After several being missing
attempts to start the kite from hand, my wife then has held the kite
and I have run like a little boy over the beach to pull the kite into
But when the kite then came over the trees and into the wind, it then has pulled at a wind speed of approx. 7 m/s like a horse.

I like to be available for questions, suggestions or experience exchange.
I would be very pleased about an entry in my visitor's book.
