A couple from White Horse Hill before the wind, weather and Red Kites forced me down. Once it’s calmer I’ll try and get closer

Take battery and drone in cabin luggage and remember that in Italy you can only fly at 70m high and 200m away. Well that’s what the law says anyway


Not the best shot as still learning but heres a brief effort from this afternoon.
the first is with the mavic 2 pro, the second is from the Typhoon H. both taken in auto, altitude 70m distance from the track 160m.
This is Warton stock car club near Carnforth.

I’ve been drifting thru the site trying to get a feel for the people and the site itself, and wandered here. The photos are stupendous, and this one in particular is to me what drones and photography is all about; get a camera where heretofore you just dreamed about captures like this and settled for ‘street’ photograpy. Magnificent!

Cast your eye over Photographic Order of Merit Gallery for some of the most excellent. :+1:

Just magnificent and admittedly, while I know the mechanics of photograpy my efforts are usually pedestrian and mundane. Said differently, boring and might as well have a robot take the shot. The artists are blessed with a good ‘eye’ and ok, yes, sometimes a bit of luck but many just seem to be lucky all of the time LOL Thanks for pointing me there . . .

Thanks Brian, I’ve looked around for ways to get stuff printed in local papers but it seems pretty faffy and they have their own ‘preferred’ photographers!

A lot of papers have a page for “readers photo of the week’ I usually send it into their email address and nine times out of ten it gets published. Worth a try. They tend to like local interest photos, churches, swans, duck, farmers fields, anything non controversial, and seasonal, so think of frost or snowy scenes in wi tee, golden leaves on trees in autumn etc, visually pleasing and must mot contain any re oh Isabel persons or adverts. Give it a go, they like to see different perspectives on subjects.

Wow. That takes me back to my childhood holidays in Morecambe and seeing the sun setting behind the Britannia pier.
