Gestel



A red Kite, No wind and  a GoPro.
The task:  Try to get the kite as high as possible by walking the kite, At a certain height give a lot of line so that the kite is dropping out of the air and try to make a picture of the kite carrying your GoPro without crashing...

Fun for 30 meter....


It's a very funny feeling to fly a kite in this kind of weather....  You let the kite out for 30 meters and than it's gone! It's gone!    (Berlaar - Gestel)

Just the two of us.....

A Kites is a victim Leonard Cohen 1965

A kite is a victim you are sure of.
You love it because it pulls
gentle enough to call you master,
strong enough to call you fool;
because it lives
like a desperate trained falcon
in the high sweet air,
and you can always haul it down
to tame it in your drawer.

A kite is a fish you have already caught
in a pool where no fish come,
so you play him carefully and long,
and hope he won’t give up,
or the wind die down.
A kite is the last poem you’ve written,
so you give it to the wind,
but you don’t let it go
until someone finds you
something else to do.
A kite is a contract of glory
that must be made with the sun,
so make friends with the field
the river and the wind,
then you pray the whole cold night before,
under the travelling cordless moon,
to make you worthy and lyric and pure.

Berlaar

See pictures of the castle in an other season from an other angle.

Tongerlo



I am always happy to see that my KAP pictures are found on the internet and than  published.    This is a nice booklet about the herhaldry of abbeys and monestries in Belgium;  More specific about the abbey of Tongerlo.    (The cover pictures is not mine)


Roda de Isabena

A place called El Villar...very close to Roda... not the safest place to do KAPing....



Roda de Isabena





 I've managed to make some kite aerial pictures of Roda de Isabene, despite the turbulent wind conditions combined with thermal flares…..It’s a perfect exercise in kite control and managing risque   :-)
