Outta Sight Kite Flight

I ventured down to Kennedy Park on the Lake Michigan shoreline in Kenosha today for the Outta Sight Kite Flight festival. The wind cooperated and was steady for the entire time I was down there, but the temperature was only in the low 50's on the lake front. Although there was hundreds of smaller kites, I was a little disappointed that there were only a few bigger kites. The website promised 300 kites for the "Grand Launch," but unfortunately it was 99% childrens kites. (The kids looked to be having a great time.) I flew one session with my Canon SD900 on the FlowForm 16 for the first hour or so, and then eventually switched to my Canon G9 for the aerial shots of the large kites. The wind was out of the North East, and onshore from Lake Michigan. I also captures some images with my dSRL camera with a few lenses from the ground. This is a 2 day event, but it doesn't look like wind is in the forecast for tomorrow. Here are a couple of my favorites from today:
