Great use of space to add feeling.
John Prior: Thank you T, it was quite busy here.
John, This photo evokes peaceful and happy feelings with the kite flying and the sunny day. Great capture smile
John Prior: Thanks Frances, I often wonder if it's the parents or kids that enjoy it most smile

Great photo.
John Prior: Thanks Debb
What a happy scene!
John Prior: Yes indeed, thanks Elizabeth
Really good picture, John. The pleasing circular motif of the kites and contrail must have taken some planning!
John Prior: More luck than judgement smile
I used to love the kids Peter Powell stunt kite...till it got wedged up a tree
John Prior: Kites seem to come in all shapes and sizes now, some of the bigger ones must give the flyer quite a workout.
I like the composition here, good balance between grass and sky
John Prior: Thank you Chantal
Love the composition where the mass of kites appear in a circle and seem like they are swirling in the sky. Love this shot!
John Prior: Thank you Mary
Excellent shot John, I've tried taking kite flyers, they are not easy to achieve what you want.
John Prior: Those kites move quite fast, thanks Frank

splendid photo
John Prior: Thanks a lot Vintage smile
I was never much good flying kites with my two when they were young, mind having Dunstable Downs, and the winds and thermals probably helps.
John Prior: Lots of gliders and kites of all sizes about, it is an ideal place, thanks Brian
I like the low down angle and the expanse of sky on this kite flying scene John. Good composition
John Prior: Thanks a lot Janet
Lovely composition ... did the kites create the contrails
John Prior: Maybe smile Thanks Richard.
