Snow Days – Video Clip Of The Day

Decided to try my go at some video shooting a few weekends ago. The weather was overcast, cold, and less than ideal for stunning photo shots.

Despite all of that, I decided to see if I could catch anything that caught my creative eye. I did find a lovely place to shoot and it started snowing just as I was setting up. Normally, I don’t like to fly in the snow for safety reasons, but the area was clear and safe.

I was really pleased with the final edit from this little adventure. This video clip is a good reminder for me that even in the darkest of days, if our minds are open and our hearts are centered, we can still find beauty to enjoy and share.

Hope Everyone Is Having A GREAT WEEK!

More snow here today...

Take care 🐼😊👍✌️


Winter Sunset – Photo Of The Day

Took this photo last weekend and I am really happy how it turned out. It was a beautiful sunset that is still burned in my mind. I watched the sun pass over the horizon through the eyes of my drone.

It was spectacular to see the sun change colors as it disappeared. It probably was my imagination but for a split second I thought I saw some dark patches like sun spots just as it got dark.

I’ve included my photo captured on my Mavic Pro as well as a quick time lapse video. The video doesn’t give justice to what it really looks like, but it is still beautiful to watch.

Take Care Everyone and Happy Friday 😎🐼✌️!


4K 360 View Nankin Lake, Livonia, Michigan

My first 360 video on one of my custom Quadcopters. It. was a beautiful cold day with the family enjoying the view letting dad take a quick flight over one of my favorite local MetroParks. I love ducks, Swans and wildlife. I find it fascinating that wildlife survives in such cold temperatures and swim in it. Good things coming.


Sunny Sunday – Video Of The Day

Enjoyed a beautiful sunny Sunday two weeks ago. There hasn't been much sunshine here in Michigan so you have to enjoy it when you can. Everyone have a great week!!

“Lonely Swan” – DJI FPV SYSTEM

After a whole week with no sunshine, I finally saw a break in the clouds and drove as fast as I could "legally" to Newburgh Lake in Livonia Michigan. The park was empty as it was very cold.

I was flying and saw this beautiful swan. I never want to disrupt nature when I fly, but become part of it. Oddly enough it seems like ducks, swans, and geese, do not seem to be bothered with my quadcopter.

This video is with a custom built 5 inch quadcopter I built myself. It incorporates the newest DJI FPV System. I am planning to post a review of this system as I test it a bit more, but so far I have been blown away with it's performance.

My confidence level as a pilot has increased 100%. It uses a digital signal rather than the traditional analog video feed that gets sent from the drone's camera to the goggles I wear when I fly. It's like going from watching a worn VHS tape with static and lines to watching a DVD. I will still use analog as it has it's benefits, but I think I am hooked on this new system.

Enjoy this video and everyone have a great week.
