A Royal Panorama

Reflection Tip from Milford Sound

Here’s a quick hit tip about making imperfect reflections in Milford Sound.

And here’s one of my favorite photos from this same spot!

The Pink Milk Filled The Bay

Daily Photo – A Royal Panorama

I don't make a lot of panoramas with my quad, but I thought this was the perfect situation. Usually, it shoots at such a wide angle that panoramas are not even necessary. But I wanted to do something that would end up with a much higher resolution. So I got a lot closer to the castle then normal and took four or five photos across.

High above Lake Hayes

Daily Photo – High above Lake Hayes

How pretty is this idyllic lake? It's only about ten minutes from my home and I don't know why I don't visit more often. I do like to go on runs around the outside… it's about 8 km around the whole thing. It's only glassy-still like this about 10% of the time. Most of those times, I don't even have my camera, which is a major bummer. This is actually a quadcopter shot made from three different photos.

The Trees in Arrowtown

Spotify Playlists

I have a lot of different Spotify Playlists, but the one I work on the most is probably the “Feelin’ Groovesalad” playlist. Of course, the name itself is completely nonsensical, but that’s why it’s so awesome.

Daily Photo – The Trees in Arrowtown

Every year here there is an Autumn Festival in Arrowtown, New Zealand. They have all sorts of dinners, parades, activities, and more. People love it. It happens right at the peak of this storied hill behind the town changing colors. When I took this, I had an idea, although I did not execute on it. This was taken with a quadcopter with the camera angled down to be parallel with the angle of the hillside. My idea was to get much closer and to make a giant panorama out of hundreds of photos. It's a big project, but a fun one I may work on next year.

Beautiful Manorola from the Air

More Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster!

Hey I’m a big Thor: Ragnorak fan. It’s basically a comedy and Taika Waititi changed the whole formula around. One of my favorite characters was Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster. They’ve started to release all the scenes that were cut from the final movie. Here’s one of them!

Daily Photo – Beautiful Manorola from the Air

I predict that the vast majority of people that see this would agree this looks like a magical place to visit… or even live! You definitely get your legs a daily workout going up and down these hills to eat Italian food and drink Italian coffee. And if you go uphill and downhill enough, you can even get a bit of Italian dessert!

Girl in St. Petersburg

Grand Cayman from Above

Here are a few highlights of the trip to Grand Cayman taken from above. This was mostly done with the DJI Mavic Pro and a bit of the Phantom.

Daily Photo – Girl in St. Petersburg

As soon as our train rolled into the station in St. Petersburg, we got out and went to breakfast at a great place. Sitting near us was this interesting-looking girl who was a local. That got me started on a long day of taking photos of interesting people here and there. And they all seemed happy to have their photos taken, except for this one old lady at an ice cream machine.

Little Girl in Okinawa

A Quick Edit of a Drone Photo

Here’s a video I made showing an edit of a drone photo from Waiheke. I edited it using Aurora HDR 2018 and you can see a few little tricks in the video below!

Daily Photo – Little Girl in Okinawa

We didn't get much beach time on Okinawa, even though the place is packed with beaches! Most of our time was spent in the inside parts of the island. Most Japanese think of the mountains and hills for vacation and not-so-much the beach. Anyway, as soon as we made it out here, I saw this cute little girl playing in the sand.

The Baths from Above

A Vote for Labradoodles

I don’t know if I spelled that right. But, anyway, these are really great dogs! We’ve had Blueberry (the kids named her) for about 4 years now and she’s a really good dog. And doesn’t shed! Great with the kids… never barks… always a great disposition. She likes to play fetch A LITTLE TOO MUCH and is always bringing us stuff to throw for her.

Daily Photo – The Baths from Above

Birds have it so lucky! They can get this view anytime they want. I wonder if they have any kind of aesthetic sense. They probably do, in a way, prefer to live in beautiful places, since those places often have a great diversity of food supplies and fresh water. I don't know what made me wonder what birds think. Maybe they spend very little time thinking at all… just sort of “being” in the bird-Om sense.

Daily Photo – Visiting Waiheke

Thanks again to my friend Deanie for letting my family stay at her place on Waiheke! It was a great little vacation after Tina's doctor visit in Auckland. Waiheke is less than an hour away by ferry and it's like a perfect little island getaway! There are so many cool beaches and awesome places to visit. If you have an extra few days on your next trip to New Zealand, be sure to come over thisaway!

Fly, My Pretties!

My Instagram Stories

I advise you to watch my Instagram Stories only if you have absolutely nothing better to do. This should be your absolute last-resort, like after you’ve seen absolutely every show on Netflix. Then, and only then, you should watch all the silly stuff I put on my Instagram Stories.

Daily Photo – Fly, My Pretties!

This is what I scream every time my quadcopter takes off. You have probably seen this angle of the mountains a million times by now; that's because this is what the mountains look like about 100 meters over my studio! But this was a very special evening because of this colorful summer storm that moved in. These were the colors… nothing added or subtracted! If you were watching my Instagram live stories from that day you may remember!
