One of the challenges of flying in an ultra-light is the slowness of travel, so when in an area which is not providing inspiration, it takes time to relocate. The day I took this image was one of those days and I had already been in the air for 3 hours. Running up the edge of one of the islands in Bynoe Harbour I saw a bay with some interesting colours and lines but as we approached and passed over it I knew I would need a few passes to work out composition. The wind was quite strong so we had to basically crab sideways to head in the direction I needed. After a few circuits and climbing each time I finally started to see what I was looking for as the tentacles started to balance out and work together. Once at 2500 feet it didn’t take long to finalise the capture and move on for more exploration.
