I make no secret of the fact I find landscape photography challenging. Finding a unique perspective without visual clutter can be difficult.
Earlier this week I paid a brief visit to Gatton Park near Reigate in East Surrey. I was presented with this scene and as luck would have it, I just so happened to have my newly-purchased toy with me: a DJI Phantom drone.
This example of drone photography was taken from 80 metres in the air looking south. I love the perspective: the 50/50 mix of land and sky.
I also love how clearly you can see the hills in the distance. While a stone’s throw from London, it shows just how quickly the urban environment becomes rural (and what a beautiful rural environment it is).
You can expect to see some more drone photography on this blog in future as I improve my techniques. I’m really enjoying flying my drone and using it to take pictures and shoot video, but I have more to learn.
