New drone <3

Sunset

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!

Snow day!

The beast from the East was here the other week, but as I was at work I never managed to get out and photograph anything. The beast returned (or sent his cousin?) and as today is a Sunday, out we went for a little walk

Snow day

Nothing like going out for a walk in the snow, the coming home to a nice warm cuppa!

Snow day

The weather forecast was nice, the air was still… So naturally it was a drone kind of day 😉

Bird's Eye View I decided to go to Ulley Country Park, and practice a bit more with my drone. There is a nice spot with a few benches on it that made for an ideal seating area and Return to Home point. I flew the highest I’ve flown before, but I am still hesitant about distance away from me. I think the next time that I go out with it I am doing to focus on distance more than height. Ulley Country Park

I’m slowly getting more used to the controls. I’ve gotten used to using the control to control the gimbal head.
I need to pay more attention to exposure though, as most of the shots were over exposed.

Bamford Edge

I’ve never been to Bamford Edge before, but it overlooks Ladybower and I’ve been around that area a few times before.

There is a small patch for cars near the top of the road, cross over a turnstyle and start the walk!

Bamford Edge

It’s not a far walk, but the first stretch of it is quite steep. Once you are up on the top though, it’s flat and the path is clear.

We got there just in time for sunset, and by the time we had walked back to the car it was just about dark.

Malham part 3

Gordale Scar

Even though the weather was miserable, I did appreciate the mist. Maybe not the rain so much, but I do love misty, bleak landscapes.

Malham Cove

We had tea at Beck Hall and it was very nice. We had lunch at a pub in the village which wasn’t so good.

Gordale Scar

When we woke up on Sunday it was sunny (The forecast said it would snow overnight and be foggy in the morning) so that was a bit annoying because had I known it would be nice I would have gotten up for the sunrise!

Janet's Foss

Back home now though, awaiting the next holiday – the Isle of Arran!

Malham Pt. 2

Even though it was forecast to be chucking it down all day we decided to do the circular walk. We went in the direct of Janet’s Foss – Gordale Scar – Malham Cove. I had wanted to climb up the scar but the weather conditions weren’t ideal and I’m not that brave!

Janet's Foss

When we first set out it was only drizzling a bit, so I was optimistic that the weather forecast wouldn’t be right…

Malham Cove

But by the time we got to Gordale Scar it was chucking it down! Then it chucked it down whilst e walked to Malham Cove. Then it stopped raining for the walk back.
