Aerial snow

We recently had a couple days of light snow… a bit unusual for March, but not unheard of.

I always enjoy taking pictures of snow, but now that I have a nice drone, I was able to take some aerial photos of it, too.  The only downside was I needed to wait for the snow to stop falling, since the drone isn’t waterproof.

I’m looking forward to next winter if we get several inches of snow, for even better pics, but this is a nice start.

Let’s begin with an angled view of the snow on the flowerbeds, pond, back lawn, and chicken runs:

Not from the drone, the gazebo and grove (I love that you can’t tell a difference in quality between the drone and iPhone cameras):


The next day, it snowed a bit more, about an inch, so I flew again to capture that:

The daffodils weren’t enjoying the snow:

I hope you enjoyed those snowy pics as much as I did.

  2. OK, when are you getting a waterproof drone?

    Snow always looks good – and good to see the ducks swimming towards you. It’s great when animals trust you.

    Sorry we won’t be seeing you just yet – I’m not going to Australia to see our granddaughter, either. We have rebooked for July – hope the pandemic is all sorted by then.


    1. Even if the drone were waterproof, moisture on the camera lens would ruin any pictures.

      The ducks equate me with a treat dispensing machine.

      Maintain that social distancing and stay safe!
