Here’s a bit of “abstract” art that I created with my DJI Phantom 4(https://www.dji.com/phantom-4.) This was taken after some recent rains, in December, 2016.

So, I’d parked my Jeep along this trail in the El Paso Mountains, and I decided to try to capture the vista, with the Rand Mountains to the south-west.
I was satisfied with the results, but what struck me after viewing this video on my computer, is the trail in the distance that seems to disappear into the Rand Mountains.
Here is another image from the Cajon Pass, that I shot in February, 2017. The drone was oriented toward the north, and the image was converted to black-and-white during post editing.

As a landscape photographer, I look for patterns. So, I couldn’t resist this shot, while I was flying my DJI Phantom 4 (https://www.dji.com/phantom-4) over the El Paso Mountains, recently.
Many of the rock formations in the El Paso Mountains are of volcanic origin, and the rocks in the lower-right hand side of this image seem to be of this variety.
