Quadcopters – Stuck in Customs

Ponte Dell ’Accademia at Sunrise

Daily Photo – Ponte Dell ’Accademia at Sunrise

Here’s another one of the images from my 1000 Stories from 1000 Places NFT drop. It sold out in minutes, but they are now available to trade on OpenSea and X2Y2, etc so be sure to check them out.

I was in Venice for about a month, out taking photos every morning at sunrise all the way through the sunset. Then there was always lots of heavy Italian food and bridge-wine on the way home with my friends. I’m not quite sure how I survived it or how I got up at every sunrise. I’m a trooper! But I guess we don’t want to miss any sunrises like this, do we?

I also made a video with this same scene in a meditative Alan Watts video that went viral and got over a million views. It’s one of my favorite videos I have ever made and I hope you enjoy it too. I actually made two Alan Watts videos and you can enjoy them if you jump on YouTube and search for “Trey Ratcliff Alan Watts.”

A Moody Storm in Queenstown

Daily Photo – A Moody Storm in Queenstown

One of my favorite things about having a quadcopter is that I can very quickly get a photo when the light gets interesting! This is the view from where I live here in Queenstown, and every night has a new set of light and clouds. I keep the quadcopter fully fueled and ready for action, just in case something like this presents itself!

The North Island of New Zealand has such a varied coastline, and this area was particularly interesting, especially from above.

Continuing on from yesterday, another little chunk of Laucala. The residents of this bit must start the day with the impossible task of choosing between sitting on the amazing ocean view deck, chilling out in the pool or taking a hop, skip and jump down onto that lovely sand.

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

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.
