Nendrum Monastic Site was used from the 5th to the 15th century as a place of Christian Worship. As with many sites of great antiquity buildings using wood have long dissapeared, however the main church, tower, and inner & outer walls remain.

As the monastries grew in power it was abandoned in favour of a more accessable site nearby on the mainland.

Re-discovered in the 1920s, you can see the remains below you, and all around on the horizon the waters of Strangford Lough.

Equipment

Nikon 8400 with FC-E9 Lens. Home-made camera cradle / rig, triggered by a gentLED intervalometer. Suspended below a mini-KAPilot kite approximately 16ft^2 area.

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

See the rig at http://www.gentles.info/KAP/Rigs/index.htm?item=7 how Kite Aerial Photography is achieved at http://www.gentles.info/KAP/Overview/index.htm and the workflow at http://www.gentles.info/KAP/Gallery/Panotechnique/index.htm
