#clearwaterbeach
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
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).
