Stitching the view

Doing the kite aerial photography in a completely 'natural' way - bringing the camera up and letting it fire automatically - means that you don't know what you'll capture until you get it down. While this is a bit romantic (not unilke waiting for the roll of film to develop), successful pointing the camera towards the desired motif is a black art. A not-so-wide angle camera sometimes doesn't catch a bloody thing.

But, the camera swinging in every direction under the kite means that you cover a lot of ground below - so Janez the Wizard went back to the photo folders and stitched the photos together to show a wider view. Enjoy! :-)
