Captured on Easter Bank Holiday Monday, in Manchester City Centre using my MINI3 Pro - a slightly remixed version of the first of 3 videos from the footage captured that day…


Footage of the fine cliffs of Pembrokeshire - footage captured using a DJI Mavic 3 Classic on Wednesday 17 April, on the north coast of Pembrokeshire, just to the west of Dinas Head. A breezy day, a good 20-25 knot wind, but the mighty Mavic 3 Classic absolutely nailed it!
