Kite Pirates

Sky, sea, sails
On Friday & Saturday the winds foretelling today's rain
began, and slowly increased in strength 
to gale force by Saturday evening.
Perfect conditions for windsurfing & kitesurfing.
So the 'Kite Pirates' were down at
Case del Conte beach 'en masse' (should I be 
using French in a blog about Italian life?).

Kite strewn sand
Saturday afternoon saw us down there, armed with our
cameras. For me, it was about the kites & the sails - 
their colours and forms against a backdrop of
sea & sky.  Hubby's eye was on the action - 
much easier with a telephoto lens.
I'll let you guess which shots are whose....

Making it look easy

  1. Fantastic photos, Alison! I like that you used some French on your blog about Italian life - very multicultural! :)

    1. Thanx for reading the blog Lizzy. The best photos are, of course, hubby's - I'm still learning how to use my new Canon EOS 600D
