On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the staff of a local kite store fastens generator-powered holiday lights to kites, and sends them soaring for the annual Kites With Lights festival atop the Outer Banks' Jockey's Ridge, the east coast's largest sand dune, in Nags Head, NC. Minutes before sunset, a young man prepared to launch his American flag-themed kite. I was struck by the color intensity of the back lit kite. I got five shots in two seconds, then the opportunity was gone.
