#goldenhour
more photos while practicing #flying the #dji #mavic #mini #quadcopter #drone.  shot using timed shot interval mode, so more of what i happened to get rather than carefully composed.

in the last shot, one can see the intracoastal, dunedin causeway, and honeymoon island, 4 to 7.5 miles away by air.  at the left of the image one can see buildings on clearwater beach, over 10 miles away.  even on the low resolution instagram photo hints of this are visible when looking closely or zooming in.  i think that shot was at an altitude of a little under 400 feet, where most of the lower ones were somewhere around 100-150 ft.

(i had quickly edited this twice in the #instagram ios app, though there seems to be a bug where it is not applying the lux setting and most of the vibrancy is missing as the other settings were minor.  these copies are edited in the #snapseed ios app.. it’s not an exact match to what i had originally done in instagram, but looks much better than the instagram versions without the lux setting.  at some point i may stop editing (or spending as much time and effort) on the phone, as even when it does work right, the adjustments made on a tiny phone screen are not as good as i could get on the computer, and often the color or density is off since the phone screen isn’t calibrated like a computer monitor can be)

often all we need to do to feel better and become more present is go on a short #walk in (or by) #nature.  #goldenhour #trees

it’d be much easier to do the aerial shots with a first person live view of what the camera is seeing or with a preprogrammed fly by gps waypoint system that modern quadcopters have.. not having either, i had to guess composition + direction and try to keep track of the tiny white dot in the sky and trust it’d come back :)

some locations include:

Crystal Beach
Dunedin Causeway
Fred Howard Park
Honeymoon Island State Park
Wall Springs Park

remember the true teacher resides within your very being

what you have, what you do, what others think of you, what you think of others, etc, etc do not matter in life. all that matters is your experience of life. if you don't like your experience, simply change your perception and your world will change. let go of what you once thought mattered and your attachment to needing things to be the way you think they should be, and you will find life to be much, much simpler and more peaceful. you'll be able to relax knowing everything is already perfect as it is. and then you can fully experience and embrace whatever each moment of life offers you.

often we just need to move forward through whatever resistance we may have, however it shows up in our lives.  upon doing so we can realize new, greater perspectives in life.  how and where we're looking from make all the difference.

images from first test flight with #dji #mavic #mini #quadcopter #drone (not really composed, just what i happened to get with timed interval photo mode as i was trying out the controls and fly app).

... and the next adventure begins

this van will be my tiny home on wheels during my journeys, wherever they may take me

after a quick bite to eat and a little traffic, the first stop was one of my favorite local parks for some photos

special thanks to everyone at Ferman Ford in Clearwater, especially Nick and Rudy, for all the time they spent helping me as i decided what to order

thank you to @idletheorybus, @wheresmyofficenow, @exploringalternatives, @funforlouis, and many others, for sharing your stories and adventures

stop trying to figure it out. simply relax and take it all in.

sometimes there is much more excitement and peace found in doing something simply to release the energy and attention consumed in its desire than in actually doing or having whatever it was you wanted

open yourself up to what you don't know

everyday it's different. let go of the mundane routine and break free

#sunset #sky #beach #park #island #nature #water #gulf #sun #clouds #goldenhour
 
with seemingly so much going on in the #world, #remember to take a #break from each day to #meditate or to go for a #walk in the #park. simply surrounding yourself with #trees in #nature is #healing, and the beautiful #goldenhour #light reminds us how magnificent this planet is.

also remember to practice #gratitude. some times it’s easier than others, though if we take a moment to look at our lives, there is so much to be #grateful for [like, for those of here in #florida, we can be grateful these couple days of #winter aren't nearly as cold as in many other places. if in a cold place you don’t like, find what you can enjoy about the experience, like sitting by the fire or the magical feeling of the first snowfall of the season]. by shifting our energy to one of gratitude and appreciation, we'll begin to see more positive experiences show up in our lives.

you chose to show up here on earth. you might as well choose to enjoy the experiences life is bringing you.

Tuesday #nature #goldenhour #island #walk #park #selectivefocus #lensbaby #tilttransformer
even when things don't work out exactly as you'd prefer, surrender, let go of attachment to things needing to be that way, and fully embrace and love what you do have! there's so much to be grateful for! simply being alive and here on earth today is a reason to be grateful

Tuesday #park #path #walk #nature #clouds #lensbaby #tilttransformer #selectivefocus #goldenhour
take a break every day to disconnect from the technology and aspects of life that make you think more than feel. open your heart and breathe in all of life. it will be quite rejuvenating. inspiration and guidance comes from the heart. life happens in feeling.
