Two short drone videos

I’m a long way from making any thrilling drone videos shot in exotic places. For one, I’m a drone newbie. And for two, I’m still so pinned down by the late-summer heat that it’s miserable to venture outdoors except in the mornings.

One socially useful thing to do with a drone is to take videos of local points of interest (for YouTube), and photos of local points of interest (for Wikimedia Commons). Many people, I’m guessing, don’t know what a tobacco field looks like. As for the Belews Creek Steam station, it’s impressive from the air, but its environmental record is not so impressive.

My drone is a DJI Mini 3. The video is shot at 4K resolution. As for the background music, there are free “loops” available all over the web.

    Hi Chenda: You’ve done that before, haven’t you? If you do, my first two suggestions would be the Appalachian Mountains, and the California coast between San Francisco and Santa Barbara.

    Yes some years ago, San Francisco to Boston via Mexico. Thanks for the recommendations, I’ve not seen a lot of the Californian coast, Appalachian does look interesting 🙂
