sounds of the waves at honeymoon island in the early evening

i’m very grateful that i was able to recover the quadcopter with my iphone on it.. i recall on one of the shots where i had it flying out over the middle of the lake, i couldn’t tell which way it was pointing as i had spun it around to get different views (and it was a tiny dot in the sky), and the return to home emergency button didn’t seem to be responding. i tried different modes to try to bring it back to me though i didn’t know if it had gotten the proper gps lock and compass direction or whatnot.. the flight had gone longer than other ones and i didn’t know how much longer the battery would keep it in the sky so was a bit concerned. i think i had to ask for divine grace to help me at that point and surrender to the possibility that i might lose it in the water. shortly after that, i don’t remember exactly what i tried (as this shot was over a year and half ago), though i somehow managed to fly it back. i was so glad to see that it appeared to be getting bigger and that i was able to tell which direction it was heading as i guided it towards me. as it kept getting closer, i kept hoping the battery would last long enough to get it back over the dock or close enough nearby as i saw the red light blinking indicating it was just about out of power. another time after this at honeymoon island, i don’t know if it was in this series of shots or some other time, i had an issue where it wasn’t responding and i think it was windy and i didn’t know if i was going to get it back. i’m really grateful i’ve always somehow managed to fly it safely back (and was able to retrieve it from a tree the one time i lost sight of it and it crashed way up high in a 40+ ft tall tree).

i went to honeymoon island this past Monday and saw how low the tide was with the full moon. i had never seen the sand and land at this part of the island go out so far... i decided to go back again on Tuesday to capture some little planet images. i'm grateful for being inspired to go to this part of the island so i could see it and experience it in a new way.

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.

sounds at honeymoon island a few minutes after sunset

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

surrender. let go. relax. new insights will magically appear when you take a moment to slow down and breathe.

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
