Hot of the press! Taken 5 mins ago. Am I in time? ! That was above the mist at 300m with a mavic pro.

Stunning photo.
I’m not the drone police but… just saying

120 m? I thought it was 400m… Oops! Is that new?

On 30 July the UK drone rules changed to make it against the law to fly above 400ft (120m)

While stunning to see and most of us have probably broken the drone code at some point but I find flying at that height totally irresponsible

Having had my first video disallowed I will start the first of my 5 entries with this vide of the sea mist over Portsmouth. This was taken at 6.66 am on Friday 5th October. The sun was just above the horizon but because of the amount of low cloud it gave such an ethereal atmosphere that the video has. I was hoping that the mist would stay longer for more sun to bounce off, but it was gone in a matter of minutes. Considering the small size of the sensor in the Mavic Air, I think it coped brilliantly with this.

300m? Totally irresponsible? Seems a bit harsh

My second entry is from the small time and days as the vide, but looking in the direction of the sun. You can see more clearly how the sea mist was covering Portsmouth and South Parade Pier Just visible. Again there is grain due the the higher iso required - but still the Mavic Air has handle it extremely well.

For my third entry something a bit different to the rest. The golden hour is not just about the sunrise but named because if the golden light it gives and I especially like the morning golden hour. This picture is of old Portsmouth again but taken especially in the morning of the 7th October about 7.45am. Its has Portsmouth cathedral in the foreground and the Spinnaker Tower to the right. Across the water is Gosport. I also took a panoramic image which I really like that I will post under that thread sometime soon.

My fourth entry is back to the mist - well that’s what we all love in Autumn and images that can only really be captures by drone. This was taken at Arundel about 7.55 on 15th October, although I got there a lot earlier! I arrived in the dar and was really hoping thatchy might be some mist - but you can never be sure. Again, it didn’t stay as long as I hoped, but I really liked this image with the colours and the shadows of the trees. I really want to go back here again.
