Yesterday, Sue and I went to the "Light up the Sky" event with the Kent Kite Flyers to put on a display and raise a few bob to "Children in Need". The event was nearly called off due to the inclement weather but after a day of rain the clouds parted and the wind got up.
The first two shots were taken as the sun set over Walmer.
The event consisted of kites adorned with lights which rotated and flashed in the evening light, the first one is Kevin's.
Gareth's Delta, although it was taken using a tripod the kite moving in the air giving, I think, a pleasing effect.
Heather's Delta with a very unusual array of lights forming a rider on a bike.
View of the bandstand with various displays built by club members.
Finally just before the rain started another view across towards the road.
Several people, many with children came up and admired the scene and asked questions about the kites. Len had a bucket for donations to "Children in Need" and hopefully we were able to do a little something to add to what has already been collected. As it was dark, cold and rather damp I have yet to find out our total.
Thanks for looking and I hope you have enjoyed our contribution to the Event.
