i decided to go back again to clearwater beach yesterday before it closed.  i walked north, almost all the way to caladesi island, and got some nice shots.  there were more than these, though the old iphone i’m using for the mavic mini didn’t have enough space to keep the previews, so i’ll have to download them off the microSD card later.  the fifth shot is sped up by 3.5x to fit into the instagram sixty second limit.  the filters are from the dji fly app (where the shots were cut from the low resolution preview video file). #flying #dji #mavic #mini #rc #quadcopter #drone #sunset #yesterday #beach #clearwaterbeach #florida #natural #beauty #birdseyeview #aerial #lookingdown #fromabove #dronephotography #aerialphotography #mavicmini #dronevideo #aerialvideo #sand #island #nature #water #gulf #goldenhour #landscape
we must collectively do what we can to preserve nature and protect the planet. places like this won’t exist if the sea levels rise.

it’s amazing what one can discover with good light, a higher perspective, and the beauty of nature.

after reviewing shots from my last flight on the beach and walking back towards my car, i saw the sun beginning to break through the clouds and had a feeling it’d be worth sticking around the area for another flight. i drove up the road to a public access spot that was taken by another car when i first got to the beach and saw they were gone. i parked and walked to the water to have a look, and the islands were dark at the time. i decided to go back to the car and get the mavic mini to see what i could capture. shortly after taking off and flying toward the closest island, the sunlight broke through the clouds and i got these magical images. after some days with bad light or too much wind, i was blessed with being at the right spot to get perfect golden hour light. it’s beautiful when the divine plan unfolds quite brilliantly (and unexpectedly).

this is truly a lesson in listening to one's intuition. when I was driving over here, it was cloudy and I didn't know if I'd even see the sun set. when I arrived and walked out to the water, it was absolutely gorgeous, visually and in feeling and weather. this is like heaven on earth

this is a compilation of all 72 days of the journey i took from chicagoland to california and then to florida, from september 6th to november 16th in 2012. this is running at 5x the normal speed (otherwise it’d be around 19.5 hours long). it includes all of the following parts:

– from chicagoland to california [a five week adventure]
– life in california [three and a half weeks]
– from california to florida [just under two weeks]

[...]
just because you cannot see it does not mean it doesn't exist

the conservation and preservation of nature is one of the most important things we can do today.

a simple shift of perspective is all we need to see the bigger picture. i’ve driven by here countless times and have never seen it quite like this.

all we need to do is go explore in nature to get a better understanding of life and our connection to the world.
