Having some fun in the Cajon Pass…

Flying over the Cleghorn Range, in the Cajon Pass.

Droning Over The San Bernardino Mountains…

“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.

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.

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.

My Phantom 4: another piece of camera equipment…

Although flying my DJI Phantom 4 ( https://www.dji.com/phantom-4) is fun, it is not a “thrilling” machine to fly.  The Phantom 4 is first and foremost, a flying camera platform.  For thrills, I have a small Hubsan H107C, which flies fast, and, being inexpensive, is expendable.  And, of course, I am a licensed private pilot, so I have had a lot of fun operating manned aircraft, as well.

As a photographer, though, I consider my Phantom 4 to be, primarily, another piece of camera equipment.

So, with that said; here is more video footage that I shot in the El Paso Mountains:
