Quadcopters – Stuck in Customs

Commune

Daily Photo – Commune

Because of the intense density of China, most of the public and private space can be very confining. The Chinese people themselves, I notice, often stand closer to me than any other culture. After generations of being mashed together, they have a different sense of space.

A Chunk of Hong Kong

Daily Photo – A Chunk of Hong Kong

I had a lot of fun flying around the city a few years ago, grabbing some of the less common angles and then creating some fun abstract images. Here’s one of the more normal takes.

Over Abel Tasman

Daily Photo – Over Abel Tasman

I’ve lived here in NZ for quite a while and I’ve never even been to Abel Tasman until just a few weeks ago. I did a mega road trip up there and stopped to pick up my bestie Rene in Nelson. We had a great time up there, but we didn’t spend nearly enough time. Every evening had a lovely sunset and the light was amazing. I got the drone up a few times and here is one of my faves!

New Toy

Daily Photo – New Toy

I’ve just bought myself a new drone, the Mavic Mini 3 Pro… in some ways it’s not as good as my existing drone however through an absolutely mad bit of engineering DJI have managed to keep the weight down to 249grams and its tiny size wise too. Still got 4k video, still got decent stills resolution and good range. So a really nice balance and something I can travel with far more easily! Looking forward to sharing content created with it. For now here’s a shot from the good old Phantom 3 Pro when I was in Venice.

The Pena Palace of Sintra

Daily Photo – The Pena Palace of Sintra

There are all sorts of really cool, old castles in Europe but few of them are as eye-catching as Pena Palace in Sintra, not far from Lisbon. From what I remember this is a Romanticist style completed in the 1850s. It’s a brave move not to let it age/weather like many other structures over there. Without doubt the correct decision.

Sunset in Bora Bora

Daily Photo – Sunset in Bora Bora

Here’s another of those fun Bora Bora shots from back when drone photography was a case of throwing a GoPro up in the air with some blades attached and hoping for the best, mixed with a little bit of experience. Thank you, photography gods.
