The castle was built in the 16th century as part of the fortification of the colonised Canary Islands by Spain. At this time the capital was Teguise, built inland where it is cooler.

As tourism became the main industry on the islands in the 20th century, with the advent of cheap air travel, development focused on the seaside towns, like Arrecife in this shot, now the capital. Other villages grew tremendously at this time as "holiday towns".

Dispite the development Lanzarote maintains a distince Spanish and Canary Island culture.

Precision is: High. Pinpoints the exact spot.

4 GoPro HERO2 cameras, with a wooden camera cradle/rig to hold the cameras in exactly the correct position is triggered by 4 gentWIRE camera syncronisers. Suspended below a Sutton Flowform kite with 16^2ft area.

This technique produces two hemispheres, and a different workflow in PTGui from the classic ground pano technique. This results in extra effort BUT impossible angles!

See the rig, how Kite Aerial Photography is achieved, and the workflow.
