Shot with my drone, this video shows six minutes compressed to 30 seconds.
This one just exploded over the past couple of hours. Dubbed the CalWood Fire, the town of Jamestown is being evacuated as the fire burns out of control. I shot these with my drone from my home, about 30 miles away.
A beautiful sunset this evening but, unfortunately, due to the Cameron Peak Fire which flared up this afternoon due to record high temperatures and strong winds. Massive smoke plume from the blaze (bottom right) as seen from Thornton, Colorado. Taken with my DJI Mavic Pro drone.
Sitting out on the patio with my wife tonight watching this unfold, I couldn’t resist and went and threw the drone up for a nice look at tonight’s sunset on the Colorado Front Range. Sigh. I do love this place and will never tire of scenes like this.
This isn’t a view you see very often! Taken from an altitude of 400 feet and looking straight down, this is a small island in a local open space near where I live.
Taken this past Sunday, I was looking to get a unique image and think this one qualifies. Those little white dots you see in the water are Canada Geese.
My drone will never be used to capture as many pics as my ‘real’ camera but it does have its uses and can create some pretty cool images.
A bit of an elevated look at some of the color on what was a fantastic day. The leaves were golden, the sky blew and the mountains capped in white snow. My brother got a new drone and he wanted to go out flying and I have rarely used mine so it was a good opportunity to play around. Don’t worry, while the drone stuff is fun, it will never take the place of the types of pics you are used to seeing from me. 😉
I keep saying I need to fly my drone more often and with some spare time last night I finally did. Mother Nature put on a nice view from up there too. 😉
