There is a famous place where you can see how the condors use hot air streams to ascend. They just fly 10 meters from you, so you can make nice photos.

I have to say that it was relatively easy, in the early morning condors take the hot air streams from the Colca Canyon and they cross exactly through the Cruz del Condor, the place where everyone is waiting for them. It seems that they perform this show for us, moving slowly over our heads. I made 20 shots very fast and 2 of them were pretty decent.

What a fine Condor ! - I´m new here with P. and found your shots in the DESERT-group. And now I see: You are one of the inventors of all the system. Great! Congratulations! There are so much people allover the world has this hobby all their life (me too!) and NOBODY in family or friends are REALLY interested to see... and P. and the new groups bring all this fans together!! By the way: the big industries have to participate you in their profit! Just yesterday I visited IFA in Berlin and saw all the new kinds of cameras too. And a lot of visitors will buy new technics.... May be the reason is a bit PANORAMIO too !?
