Flying On Ice!

At the tail end of my Christmas holiday, I had the privilege of meeting Craig Wilson (www.FromAKite.com) a local Madison photographer.  He was kind enough to take me out trekking onto a frozen Lake Monona in Madison, Wisconsin!  It was a brisk yet sunny afternoon almost too brisk for our kite!  Never fear, we perservered!  I witnessed and was tutored some on the masterful craft of Kite Aerial Photography! (KAP). I am still in awe that we were walking about on a frozen lake flying a 20+ foot kite in the wintertime!?! (avoiding the ice fisherman's holes, of course!).  It's not something you get to do every day!! All in a all a wonderful afternoon! Our long shadows stretching out across the ice & snow...almost as far as our endless smiles stretched! A big, BIG thank you to Craig for the fun adventures!! 

Here are a few photos of our adventures! Yes these middle four pics (those photos noted by Craig Wilson) were taken from an aerial camera mounted on a kite string and flown above us! No, I didn't make the snow art. And yes, that's me waving at the camera! Whooo hoooo! :)
