Quite a difficult subject, so a bit of photographic license is allowed I'm sure
The large colourful yacht sails called Spinnakers are also commonly known as kites.

Good show Picqero. I'm afraid we'll have to rely on our summertimers "down under" for this theme.

At -2 degrees there aren't many kites or sailboats showing themselves in my neighborhood! (-8

I'm kicking myself for never having taken any photos of the folk who used to regularly fly kites on the beach across the road from where I used to live in Spain. Had great fun watching them, never thought to get the camera out.

And I'm kicking myself for cleaning up my pc on Saturday and deleting several images of kites which I took a couple of weeks ago!

This chap was practicing with a kite on the beach in Ponto Molangane, Mozambique, the first step to learning how to kite-surf in the ocean. It is not very clear but the kite is harnessed to his body.
Looked like hard work to me!
