Doing a ride by of Sanibel Light after the race.


Sorry for the poorer image quality. I used a carry along small amphibious camera for the shots.

Shots from the first Ft. Lauderdale to Matheson Hammock Race late last year.



Things get real shallow at low tide as the regatta moves inside Key Biscayne



Neil and Garry have a breather at the far end of the run. Neil living on the edge "parks" in a posted zone?

Shot over 5000 of these for a calendar last year for http://bikinis-from-brazil.com/. Chrys did a great job pulling in models, attiring them in her bikini lines for the shoot. It was a fun project. Might as well bring some out once in a while. Grabbing for a prop, a hat, there's even kite gear in the frame! More (just a few though) at: http://fksa.org/showthread.php?t=2295




No kiting in this at all. Wonder if they do Capoeira on the NE coast of Brazil in the kiting latitudes? Caught this photo along with several hundred others during a demo at the Brazil Festival in Deerfield. It is amazing that they do this extremely gymnastic sport without benefit of mats or pads over concrete! Didn't notice any scars or bruises on any of the players either. I imagine that if an adept learned kiting they would throw some truly insane moves on the water. More at: http://fksa.org/showthread.php?t=2289

What a great shot! I used to live in the area and my favorite spot was on Sanibel. Ah, good times.

Thanks, I was uneasy about getting back to Ft. Myers. Otherwise I would have taken more time with the shots. The wind was falling off and in fact eventually turned off. At least I was able to make it back to the beach over there and walk back, whoops! It is a scenic area, one with some good wind direction options.

Paul Menta of The Kitehouse does a speed run on the Flats of Key West




Paul throws one of those spinning hand dragging things, can't ever remember what it is called. Sure looks good though.




Another Key West sunset, this one from years in the past. Is that a meteor in the upper left part of the frame? Almost 'Shopped it out but started to wonder about it ...

Default Paul Menta's move

From the looks of the position of Paul's board shorts, I'd call this trick "the plumber."

Sorry for the last two posts. Too much coffee too close to bedtime.

Not sure there will be another. That was the first one that I had done. Still, it was a challenge and I think some interesting shots came out of it. Who knows what may come?
