DJI Phantom – Stuck in Customs

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.

The Many Roofs of Venice

Daily Photo – The Many Roofs of Venice

Here’s a view of Venice that you probably haven’t seen before. I grabbed this a number of years ago, back when the life of a quadcopter pilot was far simpler as far as rules and regulations go. Now, even though this was a reasonably straightforward flight with permission, it would probably not be approved. I heard it’s really tough to get any sort of flight approval ther enow. So, it was fortunate that I could get it done and that the universe threw in a nice sky as a bonus.

A few days ago, I shared an image from Cinque Terre, one of my favorites from there. Here’s a different angle, by drone, which shows more of the surrounding landscape which you don’t tend to see.

One of the absolute highlights of our tour in Europe was the day or so of down time that we had on the Italian coast. So much amazing wine, food and scenery… awesome, friendly people too. 🙂

Random Bora Bora Exploration

Daily Photo – Random Bora Bora

Here’s a photo from my trip to Bora Bora back in 2014. Back then it was a good old GoPro that you attached to your drone. No built-in cameras on those older models. Changed days now with some great sensors on even on the consumer DJIs.
