KAP RANGIROA - Tuamotu archipelago - Tiputa pass - Jul 02, 2006

KAP RANGIROA - Tuamotu archipelago - Tiputa pass - Jul 02, 2006
Tiputa is the main pass used by big ships to enter Rangiroa lagoon, the second largest atoll in the world. We entered this morning at 11:20 on july 02, 2006 and then had a chance to go ashore. The village of Tiputa (250 inhabitants) is a very quiet and laid back place where Internet, blackberry and other"great" gadgets have not arrived yet... There is something indecent to upload these images via immarsat on board the MV Paul Gauguin from Regent cruises where I am on board, just for the week end to join Heidy, my wife who is an archeology and anthropology lecturer on board.I was looking for new KAP Targets and found a few. I had never tried Kite Aerial Photography from the rear of a cruise ship and could not imagine the influence of the thermics from the cheminey.
All the images were made from a remote cameria supsnded on a kite.
