“High On Huron”- Director’s Cut

Short spring drone clip from the lower Huron River, located near Flat Rock, Michigan and the Oakwoods MetroPark. Such a joy to have these nature parks available to access. This is especially true for us introverts that need places to escape to. Fly with me “High On Huron” and enjoy the view!

Sycamore is a name which has been applied to several types of trees, but with somewhat similar leaf forms. The name derives from the ancient Greek συκόμορος (sūkomoros) meaning "fig-mulberry". Species of trees known as sycamore: Acer pseudoplatanus, a species of maple native to central Europe and southwestern Asia.(Wikipedia)


My First Lightning Capture – Photo Of The Day

“My First Lightning Shot” So like many of us, besides working, it can be terribly mundane with the madness of staying home for this long. I received an alert that a major storm with gusts of up to 70 mph winds were headed in my direction. Did a quick google search for tips capturing such phenomena. Hopefully, next time will be better but I shot 720p video at 120 frames per second. Most of the lightning storm was in the clouds but it did capture this fantastic bolt. It was not raining by me and I kept my drone at a lower altitude and it had no problems with the wind from this distance. After 20 minutes I landed and 10 minutes later the storm hit our home full force with an amazing thunderstorm, hail, rain, and high winds. Glad I landed when I did. Anyways, it’s always fun to pass the time learning new things and techniques. Stay safe everyone!! 🐼✌️⚡️#firsttime #lightningbolt #dronephotography #dronehour #dronecapture #droneoftheday #dronepilot #dronepals #naturelovers #naturephotography #lightningstrike #rightplacerighttime #lucky #stayathome #learningeveryday #contentcreator #blogger #artistsoninstagram #michigander #mymavicpro


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.
