Sturgeon River With The Drone

Needed to get out of the house yesterday, even if it was hotter than hell outside.  I headed out to a couple spots that I thought would be good to fly the drone and get some photos, and for the most part they were.
First stop was out Old US-41 near Alberta where there’s an old camel back bridge that’s no longer in use.  I got some pretty good photos of the bridge there.  Once home, I was amazed at the detail the little camera on the drone had once zoomed in in Lightroom.
My next stop was near the Sturgeon River Gorge Wilderness Area, I knew of a couple good spots to fly along the river there.  I stopped at the first location, flew up and down the river for awhile, and got some video footage.  By the time I was finished there, it was getting way too hot to make a stop at the other spot which is right down the road.  I’ll be coming back here during autumn colors, it should be really nice with the drone.
I then headed home.

The first group of photos is from the camel back bridge on Old US-41.
The videos are from the Sturgeon River Gorge Wilderness Area.
And lastly, a photo from the other day looking out at Keweenaw Bay which is a 3×3 panorama photo.

Back Property Fly-over

First attempt at a proper video edit. Also, first time ever using Adobe Premiere Pro.
The music doesn’t quite fit, but hey, it’s in there. The video is probably a little long at 3:20 minutes, so I should have cut more out. All in learning.
This only took me about 1 1/2 hours, including the flight and learning the software.
I’m getting stoked about getting out somewhere besides my back yard with this drone and see what I can do.

First Flight

I got my drone today, set it all up and took my first flight. It was just a quick flight, I’m supposed to be working. It’s sort of windy today, so I didn’t know how the drone would handle, but it did wonderful. I took the drone up for a quick photo looking out at Keweenaw Bay from my house, though I only went up 92 feet due to not knowing how the winds were.
This is so cool! I haven’t been excited about something, anything, in quite a long time.
Anyway, this is the photo from my drone from my house looking out toward the bay, and like I said, it’s from only 92 feet up.
The photo is straight out of the drone, no processing on my part at all.

Clouds from about 300 feet. This is also the back of my property.
