KAP at Leo Carrillo State Park


Over Thanksgiving, my family took a trip to Leo Carrillo State Park for an afternoon of photography, including airphotos with the kite aerial photography rig.  The system we used here was a Skyhook 30 parafoil kite with a 15″ drogue tail hoisting a Cannon G9 camera.  It took photos over the beach, tidepools, and near-shore seagrass beds.  The tide was very low that day (something like a -1), so the water was out past the big rock, exposing quite a bit of the seagrass, but also the water was clear and the glare was cooperating, so the resulting photos show what’s under the water as well.
