Today’s trip took me through Knaresborough, and of course I had to take that well known view in Knaresborough of the train viaduct.
This is the river Ure at Boroughbridge.
Last time I was here, the river was in flood, yesterday, the river had returned back to a normal level. The difference is remarkable.
There is very little that gets me tutting, but people who think they have the god given right to dump their vehicle wherever they please, with little thought about others really get my goat.
I’ve been wanting to get the shot for awhile, but the weather has been uncooperative for every day I’ve had off. But a brief lull in the rain got me up there.
I rattled a few shots off, and then noticed the really low cloud base had started to roll in. The drone now reporting an altitude of -0.7m, the controller started beeping a landing warning, the cloud confusing its sensors.
By the time I’d got the drone back and landed, I couldn’t see the hill or installation. But at least I had a few shots to choose from.
The cloud had rolled in surprising quickly. It didn’t help with constant video breakups, as I was working with reduced range as I’d accidentally switched back to CE mode.
But all in all, a good flight, and I’d got the image I wanted, but I do want to try a different angle taking more of the quarry into view. Maybe a rotating video too.
A short film of our visit to Grimwith. I’ve been out here many times, but it’s the first time I’ve had the drone up. Despite shooting loads, there wasn’t really much to work with.
So, enjoy this short video..
Went for a walk with a willing Muse around Thruscross reservoir yesterday. Very cold, but enjoyed the company.
My initial edit of the footage was done, and I liked the outcome, however I added a few scenes from the previous visits to Thruscross and extended it out by a few seconds for the second version of the edit.
Enjoy the edits 😉
Gent in a suit eating lunch by the river. Nice to get out the office eh?
As always, more images can be found over on my iPernity site.
