Travel

Apparently this has been the summer of travel and I’ve really got to work on the whole travel photography thing. I tend to overpack for any trip when it comes to my gear. About a third of my carry-on luggage was devoted to the overflow from my gear bag!  Anyway, from NYC to LA (yep coast-to-coast) I got some decent images.  Maybe it’s time to flip over to the whole mirrorless thing…

Very other-worldly out there in the desert – the heat was making me see things.

Always Go Back…If You Can.

It pays to scout out a new shooting location.  Then you can go back and get the good shots.  I’m glad I still had time on our little trip or I wouldn’t have discovered this awesome angle of yesterday’s shoot.

Great day to fly – yeah, I’m a geek, so.

Fairy Tale

Makes you completely disregard the fact that this is actually a cemetery, right?

Tuscarora

I always wondered what BFE looked like – now I know.  What an awesome place.  A bit of a hike to get there, but so worth it in the end.  Look for more images like this hitting the marketing material of visitwinchesterva.com.

Well, just because…

I’ve been shooting this location for the past couple months.  Today was the first time I saw the engines parked so..why not, right?

Public Speaking

Another fun aerial/drone/UAV/UAS/sUAS workshop tonight at the Blandy Photo Club meeting.  It’s always fun inspiring new people to get into the aerial platform.  It also helps me keep up to date on all the new regulations, which are changing in my favor in a couple of months.  Can’t wait!  😀

I always love the way the light of the sunset plays with the cloud cover in the opposite direction.

Lots of great texture in the sky last night during the flight demo at the Blandy Photo Club meeting.
