Has summer come and gone?   Leave a comment

I’m afraid I missed it if it has……

We have made several trips out the Gorge lately – always a fun place to go. Our trips took us to Hood River, Oregon and after completing business there we wandered down to the water and found a Kite Surfing competition under way. Now this is a sport that looks wonderful but combines all the elements of speed, water, waves, and height that I am not real fond of. But photographing it was another story – great fun and a real challenge. It looks very much like being attached to a runaway kite next to a very big river in very high wind. And that is exactly what it is.

You go flat out – literally sometimes.

Some of the photographers are always looking for that unique angle.

The full gallery of shots can be found on my web site under Sports.
