The Rev 1 colors look pretty good considering how much it has faded. :blue-confused:

It's a lot harder to fly one-handed for picture taking than the Vented B-Series.
You need wrists like Ray Bethell to fly it in one hand.

One day while flying a Rev at one of our local beaches, an eagle decided to attack my kite.
He sure made a mess of the lines and managed to get away. The lines were broken in several places.
Also saw an eagle chase a friends kite. Luckily he lawn darted the kite and the eagle left the area.
Have watched two dogs fighting and get tangled in Rev lines. Not a good scene. Dog owners got a good scolding for that.

Spent a wonderful few hours kiting with friends this afternoon and grabbed this special moment not realising I had captured the ancient White Horse, the oldest of the white horses in England in the background ;)

The sheep was looking for her lamb at the time.

Actually it is the oldest horse in the world. Amazingly given how many thousands of years ago it was 'drawn' it is still one of the most beautiful pieces of art that I know (IMHO).

Thanks for pointing the Gallery out, Choccy! I'd completely missed it. I'm very envious of your scenery- the White Horse is something that I'd love to see in person.

You are welcome. (Thanks to JB for putting this easy to use gallery on this forum, which I have enjoyed using over on "Kitelife").

Your Canadian scenery is just as stunning, if not more so with bays and mountains...
we are all blessed in some small ways... it's just appreciating it that counts :)

This area is not on our doorstop, and with the current economic climate we cherish these rare moments to travel.

Just love the expression on the Fish's face. It is like "oh dear it's that Revolution thing again" in a I'm so depressed type voice.

What you mean like This Guy.

Love original Marvin.

Me too, loved the books and the TV series, but I think the film kind of missed the point, with 21st century special effects you are forced to take it all way too seriously.
