The lone survivor
The only clear shot of a kite from an afternoon photographing kites. I was new to photography, it was a cloudy day, and I kept changing settings to find one that worked. With the kites flying in one after another, I was busy clicking and not checking. Rookie mistake. Lucky I even have one image to show.

LOL Sandeep.... I beat you to that place by a month!! How's that for a co-incidence. An amazing number of birds go to feed there, don't they.

That's a superb picture you've taken of this kite my friend. Very well done and thanks for taking me down memory lane laddie.

Not al all bad for a tenderfoot! The focus is perfect and the only factor not in your favour was the light... some shadow recovery should set it right!
