As a Guy who doesn't get as much as I used to , I ask my fellow kiter for some good pictures.

In this GOPro digital age and not enough pics.

Lets see it.

Thanks

Thanks, but I think some of the pics Stringy and Gman have posted over the years have just been spectacular.

The third-to-last photo of Wiley's, with the guy throwin' a fan right next to the emergent grass, and with the arc of kites in the background is an awesome image. Nice composition.

I neglected to give photo credit to Dmitry Kraskovsky of Seattle WA. Kiter, Photographer, great stoke-friend.

These images with the Cascades in the background are from Jetty Island, in front of Everett WA. I just learned that it is a weather condition called "Anabatic Winds". Anabatic Winds are upslope winds driven by warmer surface temperatures on a mountain slope than the surrounding air column. Opposite of Katabatic.
"Steady Jetty" has probably the steadiest winds I've ever experienced anywhere in the world. Most of the images are from "The Pond" on Jetty Island.
