Portsmouth Kite Festival

Saturday just gone, I took up a suggestion form my camera group, and paid a visit to the Portsmouth International Kite Festival. It's a huge event that's been going on for 22 years, but this was my first visit. The lighting conditions weren't ideal, but I took lots of photos anyway.

The kites were visible from a good way off:

And there were certainly a lot of them:

Lots of interesting individual kites:

And some great displays by groups of stunt kites:

Portsmouth Kite Festival 240813 (23) Portsmouth Kite Festival 240813 (30)


And one more pair that I liked:

After watching a fair few displays, I continued on my way to Southsea Castle and the D-Day Museum, but more on that later.
