Droning over “Mars…”

Is this evidence of an ancient civilization on Mars?  Hardly; this is an off-road trail in the Calico Mountains, that I photographed with my DJI Phantom 4. November, 2017.

Some areas of the desert do remind me of the Martian landscape, though.

Drone Photograph: Calico Mountains…

Another folded rock formation in the Calico Mountains.  This image was taken during a visit in November, 2017.  DJI Phantom 4.  1/2500th sec. F/2.8.  ISO 100.

An alien world…

…is what I think of at times, when I’m in the desert.  Perhaps this is just the perspective of someone who grew up on the east coast.

But, the barren landscape of the desert is a big part of its allure, to me.  Some of the images that I’ve captured with my DJI Phantom 4 (https://www.dji.com/phantom-4) add to the alien world-like feel to the desert, such as the image below:

So, here I’ve used my DJI Phantom 4 (https://www.dji.com/phantom-4) to capture this rock formation in California’s Calico Mountains.  As a photographer, here are the settings that I used:  1/500/sec. @ f 2.8.  ISO 100.

I converted the image to black and white after the fact, using the simple Microsoft editing program that came with Windows 10.
