This boat was purposely sunk in October 2010 after it ended up on top of the nearby reef and holed. Many cruisers stopped to help the owners remove their belongings, the masts, and to remove environmentally hazardous items, before sinking what was left. It was a very sad day for the owners and their friends.

Very interesting view......

well done,as you known there is an elephant nose mountain in guilin China due to it's shape and for this we may named it 鳄鱼 crocodile island or what,heh!!! I like your pictures!!!

In a way it was. I was on the way back in the dinghy from another boat and I grabbed the camera (out of its waterproof bag) while still moving and snapped a bunch of shots. This was one of the best of that batch. Glad I didn't drop the camera in the water though!

Yes, it is a fun technique. But, zoom in on the map and check out the aerial imagery in Google Maps/Earth. The kite shots I took are now part of the base imagery so you can see the whole island in ultra clear kite aerial photos.

This two birds speaking about their coloured new shoes??? Nice!! Cheers yukthekey

That should have been an amazing experience!

Flying the kite used to take the aerial photos of BBQ island which you can now see in Google Earth/Maps.

You can actually see this in Google Maps/Google Earth. I took photos using a kite and Google has placed the aerial photos into Google Earth of this island. The bag and case are in the aerial shots!
