Just thought I’d take a look at a couple of panoramic shots I did recently, and this one, taken from the top of Greenhow Hill stood out.
You can see Pateley Bridge low in the valley.
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.
