Challenge: Perspective IX (Standard Editing)
Collection: 2021
Camera: DJI Mavic Air 2
Date: Jun 19, 2021
Date Uploaded: Jun 20, 2021

Set the drone up to hover over and behind me. First time I've ever launched and recovered the drone by hand. That was a little nerve wracking. I hadn't thought that part out when I went to this spot (not having a clear area large enough to launch, and land, the drone from the ground).

Wish I had used my other lens for the "photographer". Had the 70-200 on the camera and it's not showing up as well as I had envisioned. The 70-400 (in silver) would have made it more obvious what this "person" is doing lying on the ground - maybe. :-)

Thought about "removing" my camera bag in post - the black object next to me, but figured it's presence might help with the story. I'm wearing a mosquito head net and gloves, which might make it a bit confusing. Had to do it though, it's swampy in spots back here and the mosquitos can be quite pesky!!!

One of the first things I notice when I started looking at these is that the camo pattern really doesn't work in this fern bed. :-}

First thing my wife says to me when I show this to her ... "oh, it's a nice picture of your bum". LOL

I love the image and... the fact that it got the Blue.

But, what I love most is that your wife thinks your bum is cute. :D

You're a success!

:D

Cool shot Barry, congrats! I was afraid to make a tiny planet out of my 360 deg drone panorama of a Mormon church in this challenge as I thought it would cross the line for the Standard ruleset, I guess I was wrong )).

By the way, I was pretty sure that your shot was of ' . substr('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' DistantColours in the process of taking his shot for this challenge (19th place). The setting is incredibly similar!

I couldn't lie there though... I'd have snakes slithering all over me (even if only in my mind).

It's beautiful, though!


Lol to that!

Very unique in every way, worthy of the blue.
