Kite Aerial Photograph

The Photograph

This is one of a number of attractive aerial photographs taken from kites, to be found on James Gentles' web site.  This web site also gives details of the equipment used and an explanation of how the photos were taken.

The Photograph

This is an attractive view of the aqueduct with a narrow boat approaching.  Lin's Mill Aqueduct is the smallest of three great aqueducts on the recently restored Union Canal.  The canal dates from around 1820.

Lin's Mill aqueduct carries the Union Canal across the River Almond.

Congratulations to James Gentles for  receiving Special Mention in British Waterways' Photo Contest  2003 for this photograph.

Other Aerial Photos

James Gentles is keen to demonstrate how his kite aerial photographs compare with the same subjects taken from high altitude.  If you think that you may be able to help by providing high altitude photos, please email me.  Thank you.
