After much thought and other fliers photos i thought i’d visit the area. i hasten to add i took into consideration that at 3degrees this morning and gusty winds getting up into the air was easier than coming back down, but wasn’t going to waste a journey for nothing captured.
I hired a room at Shotley marina opposite Felixstowe docks in December with the intention of getting drone photography of the docks. Then we got covid and had to cancel. Funnily enough I was talking to the missus just yesterday about going back Felixtowe to get a shot for the RTF!
Nice pics BTW!
I used altitude angel to check before arrival, there’s nothing to stop you flying from the viewpoint car park right on the front adjacent the docks.
We arrived around 5am and I TOAL from the pathway along from the car park near the fort. And flew out away from the pathway.
It’s really secluded and during the darkness unless anyone else is there your not seen. See map of my TOAL.
Numerous other operators have been here too.
I’m looking for more docks now. Think this is a good starting point.
I shot manually, ISO 100 & 200. F/2.8 and just changed the shutter times and exposure, my biggest problems was the wind and freezing fingers
