Honu 2

From a recent outing with the Kona Camera Club to Kiholo Bay


A honu, or Pacific Green Sea Turtle, at Kiholo Bay.


This was the first time I ever did two-person KAP. In this case I was flying the kite and a fellow member of the Kona Camera Club, Craig Elevitch, was driving the rig and camera. I stood directly upwind of the honu, and Craig was about 90 degrees off to one side. I let out line, keeping the rig low to the water, and when Craig called "Stop!" I stopped letting out line and Craig hit the shutter. I'm more than pleased with the results.
