Memories of Summer?

Taken last summer, I thought this one brought some good memories of clear skies and time spent out of doors.

Nice kite.
Thanks for visiting me, Ellie. Bookmarked.
I like the way the fluttery red tail contrasts with the ruler-straight strings. Nice one, Ellie!
Sometime what is simple is beautiful : This is beautiful smile

Ellie, in some way i feel for you in your longing for summer. This past weekend was Emily's first endurance ride, we came through ok and she has her first 33km officialy in the book. While there i picked up quite a tan - in my neck it is more than a tan.

Beautiful colours and expert framing.

Hi Ellie. This is a great picture, made so for me by the parallel guide strings...can imagine them as jetstreams from an intercontinental jet.

By design or by accident, you caught this sprightly kite at a perfect moment when the tail made a graceful curve. The whole is nicely balanced.

The control strings do remind me of vapour trails from jet aircraft. I had to look twice to be sure they weren't.
EJWilkins: I took about eight pictures of this kite, there was only one other that was worth thinking about and that one included some land. This one 'felt' nicest.
Certainly brings back memories of long summer days. Simple but very effective - like it.
It is difficult looking at the clear blue sky in this pic, as the winter gloom still exists...

Absolutely super, Ellie, of course. And just look at those primary colors all together against the blue, blue sky! The kite strings definitely "make" this pic! smile

Thank you for a much needed splash of color after yet another overcast weekend here in Houston.

Very nice. I love the colors and such a bright blue sky. I love that you got the kite string. I really like the framing and crop here. Well done.
