This was taken over the El Paso Mountains. The structures are the old “complex” of cabins that belonged to the late Tonie Evelyn Seger, and William “Burro” Schmidt. Looking past the cabins, some parked vehicles can be seen. The vehicles are parked at the entrance to Burro Schmidt’s Tunnel, which is a popular attraction for off-road “tourists.”

What I love about this image (created with my DJI Phantom 4), is the contrast between the hills in the foreground, which are slightly in shadow, and the hills in the background, which are in the sun.

“Winter” in southern California usually results in greener mountains. Here, my DJI Phantom 4 captured some video of the greenery in the San Bernardino Mountains.

…State Park, that is.
Notice how the trail shown in this image seems to disappear into the reddish rock formations in the distance. Those rock formations are located within Red Rock State Park. This trail is one of many that snake through the El Paso Mountain Range.
The Sierra Nevada Mountains can be seen in the background.

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.
Here is another interesting “abstract” photo, that I took with my DJI Phantom 4.
Location: Calico Mountains, CA.

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