Dakota Mill & Grain, Wall, South Dakota - KAP 2008-39
While visiting the badlands we stayed in Wall, South Dakota. This is Dakota Mill & Grain, Inc. in Wall, South Dakota. My KAP objective was the infamous Wall Drug store on the main street (in the upper left corner of the first photo). Numerous power lines made launching a kite in the downtown area iffy, at least for the direction the wind was blowing this day. The people at Dakota Mill & Grain kindly let me launch on their property and I intended to walk the kite and camera into town. After about 15 minutes of KAPing their facility I started to make my way to town but the wind picked up intensely and I had to back up to my "big space", anchor the kite and walk it down with a pulley. It was quite a struggle and although disappointed with not reaching my objective, I was glad to finally have camera and kite back to the ground.
These photographs were taken using kite aerial photography (KAP).
