Thought this shot of Monument valley was kinda cool.


I hope the rods on the front of the kite were just for the picture, if not just letting you know they go on the back.

No insult intended just so you know even John started flying with the rods on backwards :kid_smartass: Maybe i'd be better flying if i had started that way as well :kid_brooding:
Jim,
Ft. Taber Park & Brenton Point

Rev's are like a carbon framed out-of-body experience

ya i was parked on the highway sorta in a hurry and still had to flip it around so Rev logo wasnt backwards and then hung it on fence by the bridel, and then be very careful of the barb wire :kid_smartass:
Cowboy, rocks in your pockets couldn't hurt.

Cool shot Ben!

Are you going for any interior shots of famous landmark places while in France? Maybe one at the Louvre?

Or do you not have anyone to bail you out?? :kid_devlish:

OK, I know there are already photos at Lady Liberty, but how about "The Ladies at Lady Liberty" :kid_content: .... with The Verrazano Bridge peaking behind her.

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

It's not a famous landmark, but the Cape Mudge Lighthouse on Quadra Island is in a very scenic location.
I really should've been wearing a hat, though. :rolleyes:

Godrevy island lighthouse, SW England (famous for it's smugglers coves and pirates) :D

What was really cool was that the place was deserted apart from one guy who drove past, stopped, turned round and said "do you mind if if I take some pictures of that". He then produced two pro cameras with MASSIVE lenses and proceeded to click away for the next 10-15 mins whilst we buzzed around!

Shame there wasn't quite enough wind for the vented B's - although the ground was covered in nasty spikey kite eating bushes which made for very nervous flying...

Fame at last :lol:

Nothing like a challenge to highten your nerves when flying around nasty spikey kite eating bushes whilst having your picture taken ;)

And I see "kite Monkey" has made an appearance too *smiles* :kid_content:

Looks like you are having great time/weather.... :D

I'm sat here by the open fire to keep warm
and hoping the wild winds ease a bit for some flying of my own soon.

Hey there Ant this is just north of where I snapped my pics There was no wind the day i was travelling. I sure love that country. I got a little air time in Moab. but i havent figured out how to take pics flying, I need more hands.Sure would be cool to cross paths sometime.
