Shots from a kite aerial photography session in Waipi`o Valley on the Big Island of Hawai`i - This was a wonderful session with clean wind and fairly steady camera position. I did walk it around a little, and changed altitude several times, so there's more than one vantage point in this set.
A couple of the shots include the kite line. Unfortunately in several of those the camera focused on the kite line instead of the scenery. Wonders of modern cameras...
