This is taken a few days ago at Pärnu beach, the beach resort in south-west Estonia. It's been sunny, warm weather with a little bit of wind so great for taking kitesurfer photos.
The zoom on the G12 is pretty weak but I'm working with what I've got. I just love the abstract simplicity of the kite against the sky, an echo of the sun and moon. And the tiny man on a board struggling to keep control. A tiny harmonic moment.
When it's sunny at Pärnu, the sea becomes a glittering piece of fabric against the sky. The whole atmosphere becomes almost ethereal.
