KAP in low light conditions
I made myself a light-weight rig inspired by the Filalu design by Christian Becot. I am happy with it, it packs small and it is not easily damaged during transport. I wondered if I could get sharp shots using slower shutter speeds than I normally use; 1/500 instead of 1/1000. I had a KAP session just before sunset with some clouds. I ended up with an acceptable amount of shots without motion blur. I am not happy with the colours though. Next time I will start a little earlier. The Kapelse Moer is a peatland nature reserve, practically pristine since 800 A.D. It is an important breeding site as well as a fouraging area for migrating birds. You can only fly a kite here in August or September without disturbing birds.
The cows were totally unimpressed by my kite.
