Big Mike's new kite via Jynx. A photo can't do it justice. I call it the "Black Diamond."

My silly time-lapse from today. From about 11 am to 1:40 pm. This was at a five second interval. Next time I'll shoot it with a two second interval.

Really great photos and video. The time lapse is hilarious! It would be cool to compress the entire day into a two-minute video, wide angle, showing the whole field and all kites and fliers.

Shari's Cody looks even better in person. Those of you who missed it, well, I guess you missed it.

Good day with my kite friends, some old some new. Thank you, everyone.

P.S. -- @BasicBill, make mental note: five second interval is perfect for cloud movement in 11-13mph wind. Watch the video again, but only watch the clouds. Perfection.

Nice photos, thanks for posting. I agree with Mark about the clouds in the video! Cool cloud video, with a few flashes of kites!

Yes, I used those same settings a few weeks ago when a storm came through. Thanks.
