Kite Survey Training

A group of seven ACFA members spent a windy but sunny Tuesday getting to grips flying a kite with added photographic duties.  The preserved iron age landscape on South Moorhouse Farm rang to the sound of laughter as members tackled an activity most had not taken part in since childhood.  Eventually the kite was successfully launched and after its maiden flight the camera was attached and a trial set of photographs was taken.

The concensus was that this had been a very successful introduction but that more experience was required to judge the height required for good aerial shots and a second trip to the farm will take place soon.
