Tongariki, Easter Island seen from a Kite at sunrise.

Kite Aerial Photography. Kite : Dan Leigh Delta R8 – Camera : Ricoh GX 200 with Wide Angle converter. Rig : AutoKAP travel rig designed by Brooks Leffler.

 

This KAP session was one of the 31 KAP & PAP sessions we had over a week stay on Easter Island… Over 10 000 images to sort, delete and edit…

 

The sun was out by 7:40 AM and we only had a window of 3 minutes of perfect light, the kite was already up in the air and as soon as the sun rose over the ocean the rig was up above the Moais. It was interesting to see that a dozen other visitors had also made it for sunrise, but all of them were facing the sun, we were looking for the shadows !
