Scottish Windfest

This weekend our town hosted an event called "Scottish Windfest". This is a grassroots show for windsurfing, kite-surfing and a host of other water sports for all ages.  It was very well attended and actually quite exciting to watch.
I went down today to have a look with my trusted wee point and shoot camera.  I took quite a lot of pictures but I'll not post them all here - is that a sigh of relief  I can hear. Mmmm.
I'll tell you what though you would have to be very fit to do that wind-surfing, those kites are huge.  If I was 20 - no make that 30 - years younger I might have been tempted. Ha - who am I kidding I could never have done that, ever.  Anyway on to the pictures.



  Look at that sky - and it didn't rain.


 Even the pets joined in.



 Photograpers were everywhere.


 







 Hope that wasn't too many pictures for you!!

Lovely photos Ellie,
That sky looks pretty grey, a bit like the sky we had here today.

Lots of photographers there too and the kites look great.
Hope that you enjoyed it all.

Have a good week

You captured some beautiful shots! I wouldn't join in either although it would be so much fun to watch. I love the shot of the photographers too. Their lenses are amazing.

No, I would never attempt that either. But it makes for beautiful pictures! Wow - that was a dark sky: glad it didn't rain on the festivities!

That looks like an exciting event. The water sure was choppy and cold looking. Nice pictures.
