Wow! I take it o=for granted at times and forget how lucky I am that these are close. This area is about 70-90 mins drive

That's great. I just checked and Big Bend is 6.5 hours from me. I've never been but would love to go.

First time posting from youtube so hopefully this works. Heres a quick clip I took with the drone in the same area as the photo above. Make sure you change to 4k quality if thats not the default

Really cool video Eddie. So beautiful there. Check out Adam Gibbs for beautiful drone work and photography.

By the way, I purchased the Salomon X Ultra 3 Mid GTX since it was more of hybrid boot with less weight than the Quest 4D. I like them a lot.

Shot this with the drone today during work. It was a bit wet so I ended up with rain on the lens and I can see it a bit in this image

Not a bad place to work I suppose..... ;-)a

Indeed! We are going to be strengthening and painting this rail bridge this year so I was up having a look at the access etc and taking some aerial photos.

I done a bit of an experiment today. I took 16 shots in silent mode using my intervalometer and then stacked them in photoshop with median stacking mode to create a pseudo long exposure (smooth reflections app style). The minimum interval I could set was 1 second so I think the 1 second gap is what has caused the jittery effect in the water closest to the rocks. Not a bad result but not as good as smooth reflections app.

As a comparison the shot below is a single exposure taken with the Lee 3 stop soft grad ND, Lee CPL and Lee Little Stopper. Not an ideal comparison though as the exposure time is not comparable. I also couldnt get the white balance to match between each photo probably due to the colour cast from the filters

I can’t make my mind up. I wish I had only used the lee big stopper and not 3 filters as it’s changed the look so much. Would rather have seen a closer comparison. I’ll do some more trials with the stacking technique and decide. Ideally want to do away with my filters if I can to save carrying them

Too bad it's not a railroad bridge with a train on it. That would make an epic aerial shot (although it's pretty epic as it is :-) )

Maybe you can write off the cost of your drone as a work expense too. ;-)a

I waited for a train for a bit today but none came ! :)

I hit the jackpot with the drone as my work agreed to pay for it. I use it for work stuff like today but I also get to keep it at home and use it in my spare time. Result!!

Awesome!

By the way, that valley looks like a pretty awesome glacier carved it out as well.

Yeah, they are pretty amazing...I spent most of 2018 getting used to using one...and will continue to use it this year...I want another one...and the big AD600...its never ending!

Yeah the price you pay for a Canon 430 EX II you can buy one of these and they are so much better. Have you considered the AD400 since it's just between the two?

Great comparison Eddie! I feel like the mechanical single exposure does look a bit smoother in some of the water areas but impressive result regardless!

Both versions were full electronic/silent shutter but yeah the filter one does look smoother. I wonder if I had taken more than 16 shots it would have looked smoother on the stacked version? My laptop might not have liked it though. Took about 8 or so minutes with 16 shots to stack them

I've not used any filters except a CPL for waterfalls for a long time - Most of mine are even under a second or thereabouts ;)
