KAP at Easter Aquorthies, Scotland

A Great KAP session with Simon Harbord, the "Auto KAP Guru" but also a fantastic host and talented guide who showed us some hidden targets in Aberdeenshire.

We spent 4 fantastic days touring the countryside in search of some subjects to KAP... and when you know there are over 3000 castles in Scotland..... this is a KAPer's dream !!!

 

Conditions were ideal to fly the Dan Leigh R8 Delta and to really start experimenting the art of flying "slack line" : an answer to all stability questions regularly seen on the KAP forum.

 

This specific image is the perfect exemple of flying slack line : the rig and the camera seem to float in no gravity, guiding the kite and very smoothly the wind will take over. Thanks Simon this is great and much more pleasant than fighting against a kite pulling like a truck !

Easter Aquorthies is a Stone Circle in Aberdeenshire

 

This is a lovely recumbent stone circle, situated on the false crest of a hill just outside Inverurie. One of the stones is made of stunning red jasper and there is a 'reserved' area in front of the recumbent, delineated by two huge slabs which stick out from it, pointing towards the centre of the circle. A very interesting circle which warrants much more study.
