Following The Scorch Marks…

This is one of my earlier filming attempts, with my DJI Phantom 4.

I basically followed the campfire scorch mark up the side of the hill, and was then treated to a breathtaking panorama of the Calico Mountains.

It’s all in the details…

I was struck by the details in the foreground of this image.  Specifically, the small rocks and creosote bushes.

Path To The Dark Side Of Black Mountain…

In this image, which was taken in May, 2017, it seems as though the viewer’s eye follows a path that begins in the lower right, and which terminates at the east side (the “darker” area) of Black Mountain.

Dark Canyon…In Black and White…

I really enjoy black and white photography.  Ok, my DJI Phantom 4 can’t take photos in black and white, so I have to convert the images to black and white in “post-production.”

Even so, the contrast between light and shadow fascinates me, and is dramatically illustrated in this photo that was taken in November, 2017 in the Calico Mountains.

Treasure In My Own Back Yard: The Cajon Pass…

Sometimes, I just like to explore the areas near my home.  I live near the Cajon Pass, and this image was taken in February, 2017 (with my DJI Phantom 4), on one of those occasions.

Drone Panorama…

The sloping plain is in the El Paso Mountains Wilderness area, with Black Mountain on the right.  My DJI Phantom 4 was oriented toward the north-west, when this image was taken, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains can be seen in the distance.
