Huntington Beach Kite Party 2012 Practice Session

Huntington Beach

Practicing for the 2012 Kite Party in Huntington Beach

Saturday March 10, 2012 is the official start of the Kite Party (non-festival) in Huntington Beach so I was sure to find a few photo opportunities as they practiced. Apparently they come from all over the US for this two day event.

The weather was perfect, in the low to mid 70’s at the beach and a nice breeze. There was so much happening out at HB today, a Jr surfing competition, beach goers and of course all these kite enthusiasts.

People stood on the north side of the pier to watch the practice sessions. I captured the picture above from the pier, as another photographer was giving them instructions down from the sand.

For those interested in the specs: captured with a Nikon D7000 and 80-200mm 2.8 lens. Settings were 80mm at f/5, 2000/s and ISO 200. As for the kites, don’t know exactly what kind they are, but you can visit the Kite Connection which hosts the event or check out a few online here. There is also information over at OC Great Deals about this event.
