The shot above is a shot from above so to speak. A few weeks ago Denise and I spent a week in the Finger Lakes area of New York. The color was quite nice in a couple of areas and in many others areas the trees were early in the process of turning colors.
The image was taken from a Phantom 3 quadcopter. I have noticed that other photographers either love the idea of these photography platforms or hate them. I totally understand the love portion of this equation. But the hate portion I don’t understand. Like all things in life there will always be people who are reckless or careless. I can only speak for myself, but I always check for flight restrictions before flying and always try to fly in a safe and responsible manner.
To me, aerial photography is another venue to express and exercise creativity. I look forward to seeing where this technology will go next!
