No idea why I forgot to post these yesterday but I did! I went out to shoot the bluebells in the nearby woods, but sadly when I got there the sun went behind some clouds and didn’t really come back out : (
Whilst in Devon I flew my drone for the first time in a long while. I will admit I have always been a nervous flyer of my drone, but for whatever reason whilst I was in Devon I just kind of went for it in some places. I particularly don’t like flying it where there are people, but some of the places where we went it was just me and kB, so out it came.
When we came back, I realised that part of the issue is that my drone is very much a “toy”. The range isn’t great, the controller connection to the drone becomes weak often and error messages appear… So after a bit of research I bought a new drone… Video below!
Day 4 / 16 – Photo in a different location every day challenge
Location 4: Ladybank Wood, Derbyshire, UK
Perhaps a little bit too early for bluebells ‘properly’, but they sure are out in force. Lots more still to come up though, so another trip to a different bluebell location will occur next week. I could have quite literally sat there for hours. It is a nice warm day, warm enough to be comfortable in a dress without a jumper and tights (and given I am always cold this means it must be warm). I was the only person there, and for the entire time I was there the only sounds I heard were me, and the sounds of nature. Lots of bees and butterflies ^_^
Had a busy day today. Went to Woolley Woods in the morning to photograph the bluebells and then off to the practice rooms to photograph Rob. Took an obscene amount of shots however Lightroom makes sorting through them relativity easy.
However, bluebell woods is another thing crossed off my list of things to photograph ^_^
Got hopelessly lost on the way there as my sat nav kept loosing signal. Turns out that I’d parked at the “far end” and if I’d known where I was going the “near end” was more or less next to Meadowhall *urgh*. Double *urgh* as the practice room is also near Meadowhall! Oh well!
