Playa El Palmar, Ixtapa, Mexico - KAP 2012-4
This kite aerial photography session took place at Playa El Palmer, Ixtapa, Mexico. Playa El Palmar is the nearest beach to Casa Candiles, the Bed and Breakfast where we stayed during our vacation. The B&B is about 10 minutes walk from the public access near the south end of the beach (beside the Barcelo Hotel). There are no small hotels or B&Bs on the beach as you will see from the photographs. The buildings are large hotels and condominium complexes.
These images were obtained using a camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography - KAP). The session was with autoKAP, whereby the camera was triggered every 8 to 10 seconds while making a stepwise slow 360 degree rotation. The wind was not strong enough to lift my fully remote-controlled rig.
This is the first of two KAP sessions on this beach. This session was along the south half of the beach. A few days later I explored the northern end of the beach with my aerial camera. The second session can be viewed in the KAP 2012-5 Gallery.
