It's Not Always About the Height!


The temptation when you start flying a drone is to get up high above the landscape and marvel at the amazing views. Soon you start to realise that one of the best things about drones is getting into locations that were previously inaccessible, even if they are only about 15 feet off the ground! This view shows the froth created by the Lal Lal Creek where it enters the Lal Lal Reservoir. This spot is around 20kms south east of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia

I know I already commented on this but man I love this photo. Can't tear my eyes away!!!!

Thanks Ian, I have a range of images from this spot, I've been here 3 times in the couple of weeks and each time it's giving me something new...I'll post another one (or two!)

  • I found some eroded badlands formations on public land 15 miles away from Badlands National Park in South Dakota (since I wasn't in the park, I could legally fly my drone here). Flew my Mavic 2 Pro up at sunrise to capture this image. Sunrise light is hitting the cliffs at the bottom of the image, while the rest of the formations were still in shadow and had a cooler color cast to them, allowing me to play with the complementary colors.
  • I've been following the new Lal Lal windfarm on a regular basis for quite a few months now and on Friday morning I got the conditions I've been chasing. This is close to the city of Ballarat, Victoria Australia
  • I had so much fun photographing icebergs in Greenland. I used my DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone to fly around this interesting berg, shooting it from many photogenic angles during a seemingly endless sunset.
