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.
