Kite aerial photography shot of the day 05

Brevard Community College baseball practice.

  This was a really windy day and it was hard to get my kite back down again.  One way to better know the wind conditions at the very spot where you intend to fly your kite is to use a handheld wind meter.  You can get an accurate measurement of ground level wind speed.  It's a handy tool to help figure out if your kite will lift your rig or if you need to reconsider your plans of launching your largest kite.  Note that in the background of this photo you can see the Indian River and the Eau Gallie Causeway.
