A Row of Posts in the Chesapeake

Last year I did some KAP at Elm’s Beach Park, a beach on the Chesapeake Bay. One of the subjects was an interesting row of posts out in the water. I couldn’t get as close to it as I wanted at that time, though, and I also decided it looks better in a vertical (akaContinue reading “A Row of Posts in the Chesapeake”

Radio-Controlled KAP at Point Lookout

It was spring, and we were finally starting to get some nice weather after a long winter. Late one afternoon, I headed to Point Lookout, MD to take advantage of some wind and hopefully nice lighting for aerial pictures of the lighthouse. The wind was stronger than I expected, but it was well within theContinue reading “Radio-Controlled KAP at Point Lookout”

Point Lookout Lighthouse

The weather has not cooperated with my schedule to do much KAP lately. Today, the forecast was overcast with a chance of rain all day, but there was finally some wind in a direction suitable for taking aerial photos of the Point Lookout Lighthouse, so I decided to head over there and see what wouldContinue reading “Point Lookout Lighthouse”

Fishing Pier at Point Lookout

It’s been a while since my last KAP session. The wind has been pretty calm during these last couple months of summer, and between that and my schedule, I haven’t had any chances for KAP. Finally, this weekend, there was some decent wind, and it was blowing from the southwest, just the right direction forContinue reading “Fishing Pier at Point Lookout”

A Beach on the Chesapeake

Today I returned to Elm’s Beach Park, a beach on the Chesapeake Bay in Southern Maryland. The objective was to get some pictures of this location in the summer, since the last time I went was in the winter, and also get some different angles. The wind was from the southeast, which put the kiteContinue reading “A Beach on the Chesapeake”

Calvert Cliffs

Calvert Cliffs State Park: a place I’ve been meaning to go since I first came to Southern Maryland for an interview more than six years ago. I finally went there for the first time last Friday, June 18, when I came along with my daughter for a school trip. The site has a small beachContinue reading “Calvert Cliffs”

High Above Chancellors Run Park

It was a hot afternoon with a steady breeze, and I had a couple hours available, so I decided to head to Chancellors Run Park. It is a site I have flown at many times before, but I haven’t taken good aerial photos there recently. The last time was with my old PowerShot SD1400IS, whichContinue reading “High Above Chancellors Run Park”

KAP with the Rokker at Myrtle Point Park

Myrtle Point Park is a public area with walking trails and a small beach on the Patuxent River in St. Mary’s County. It is just about a mile away from the Governor Thomas Johnson Bridge, which connects St. Mary’s County and Calvert County. At the entrance, I was a little surprised to find out thatContinue reading “KAP with the Rokker at Myrtle Point Park”

Solomons Island – Take Two

I was hoping to do the first test flight of a new kite I’ve been building (more on that later), but the wind was too strong. Actually, it seemed like it might be too strong for any of my kites, but I had a couple hours available, so I took the Mini Dopero over toContinue reading “Solomons Island – Take Two”

Elm’s Beach Park

It was time to take some aerial photos of the Chesapeake Bay! As one of the most prominent geographical features of the area, it definitely needs to be featured on this website. I remembered that Elm’s Beach Park, public beach area, exists because I had gone there a few years prior. It’s located about 6Continue reading “Elm’s Beach Park”
