First Snow of 2018:

Sunday_River_1stSNOW_10182018Thursday October 18th, I awoke to find the neighborhood covered in a dusting of white. Frost and freezing temps had been mentioned in the forecast, but not snow. So, having repaired the drone the night before; I packed The Drone and took a drive to Sunday River in Newry, ME.

Friday, October 19th, Sunday River opened at 10AM for the 2018/19 season.

The Drone Saga continues:

Thursday: October 4th around 6:30PM, The Drone went M.I.A., when the remote lost signal with the aircraft.

Saturday, October 6th. The Drone had been found and posted to the local Swap & Sell on Facebook, looking for its original owner.

The Drone now recovered, was in need of a new compass before it would fly again.

Why the back story of The Drone? The very day after repairs were made to the The Drone and having taken the above photo at Sunday River, The Drone had another incident. During a test flight a gust of wind, took The Drone straight into a tree in the front yard. It came crashing down and broke the gimbal/camera. Once again, The Drone is grounded.

Autumn Collection 2018

2018 Autumn Colors, Did Not Go According To Plan. The plan had been to shoot the colors of autumn with the drone, but on October 4, that very drone went M.I.A. Plan B!?, which didn’t exist became the dslr, with it came a lack of locations from which to shoot. Coming up short on locations and having had several days of rain thrown into the mix, winds gaining strength and taking the leaves from the trees. Peak Foliage had come and I wasn’t ready; to this my solution. On the evening drive home to from Fryeburg to Norway, it was now or never. It was raining, not all that hard and I decided on a somewhat different approach.
