I have recently taken an interest in Kite Aerial Photography (KAP). Basically you stick a camera on a big kite and take some pictures from up in the air. With the use of a 180° fisheye it makes for a very interesting perspective, especially here at the South Pole.
I work some software magic on the pictures to produce so called immersive bubble panoramas, which I think are very cool. Almost like being there.
I will be posting some of the KAP pictures. So please come back and check often.
Last but not least, I would like to thanks Eric Muhs for the inspiration and for leaving a kite (sponsored by the Drachen Foundation) at the Pole. Also many thanks to kite wrangler Robert Schwarz. Couldn’t have done it without him. May the Schwarz be with you!
