A horse, a car and a kite
9 months ago

Firstly let me explain that the kite was used to hoist a GoPro since the Leica M/ 21mm Summilux was a bit heavy. Then the horse...actually a pit-pony in the Welsh Valleys although this one is made from coal slurry and is possibly the largest sculpture in the UK. And the car...well, just as I was about to take a boring eye-level view of the Penallta Pony there was a vroom, vroom and a red car shot into view...click (sorry, Leicas go clunk).

For those interested in the technology.... it was a very, very old cotton kite with a very, very long waggly tail and the GoPro beamed the image wirelessly to my Nexus7 so that I could do the framing. Except that the GoPro went out of range so I had to switch to intervalometer mode (while airborne) and hope for the best as the rig climbed into the upper atmosphere.

PS: I am posting this here because there is no GoPro forum
