Cadillac Ranch

We went to the Cadillac Ranch late this afternoon. The wind was about 2.5mph, so we're lucky we got the kite in the air at all. We had 500lb dacron line on the spool, which created a lot of extra weight and drag.


The kite was able to lift the rig to low altitudes but only while we were walking. We didn't get very good pictures, but a couple of them were promising. We'd hoped that we could use the fisheye to do a panorama, but since the lens adds nearly an extra pound to the rig, it was not to happen.

Plans are ongoing to revisit the Cadillacs since they are such a fun and unique subject to photograph.
