Flying Over The Wabash
Last week I braved the cold and went out to fly my drone on the Wabash. It was a chilly morning, but I wanted to show the ice that was floating down the line. Normally the cold isn’t a big deal, but when you have to have exposed fingers making delicate movements it can get cold quickly. Luckily for me I had a fun uneventful flight. I don’t know that I flew my drone in 2021. My gamble is a bit off so the photos always seem a bit off to me. I could get it fixed, but the limited places that you can fly now make having a drone a novelty. As I write this I have already shoveled snow a couple of times and the kids are off of school. I am sure that the next couple of days will see this blog filled with snokeh images. There will be a definite winter theme for a while here which is always a good thing.
The photo directly above is a six photo vertirama stitched together in Lightroom. I think that I could make this a bit better using the transform tool in Photoshop, but I sort of like that it is a weird size. With my old computer stitching this together would have taken forever. Now it just takes a couple of minutes from start to finish which is great.
Over The Top
Here I had some fun with a photo that I have made a few times. I always love looking right down onto the ice as it flows down the river. By slowing my shutter speed down just a little I allow the snow that was coming down to streak through the frame. It just adds something different which is always good. One of these days I can get really aggressive and slow the shutter down enough to be able to pan with the ice. I would have to be pretty accurate with my flying, but that could end up with a cool result. This ice was not moving fast enough to try that. It is always good to keep an idea in your back pocket for the next time anyway.
