Default Morro Bay -Drone Revisit

I drove down to Morro Bay today, it was a lot less overcast that for my last trip, so here here are some of the results of today’s flight around the bay.

First two 180º panoramas, which will be followed later, once it is rendered, by some video shot at 4K 60fps with a Freewell ND16+CPL filter @ ISO100 & 1/120 SS.

Excellent! Under $1,000, was it not? I am tempted.

Did you circumnavigate the rock? (OK, actually a hill shaped mass of
granite (?).) ... I always marvel when I drive by that.

The basic Mavic Air 2 is $799. I bought the “Fly More” bundle @ $988 which adds two more batteries, a 3 battery charging bank, extra props, some ND filters, and a bag. I also bought a more comprehensive set of ND filters, and those seem to be better quality than the ones which came with the bundle.

I had thought of that, but it is a protected peregrine falcon nesting site, there are heavy fines for intruding on, and climbing the rock. That would make any drone retrieval if needed, quite costly.

Morro Strand State Beach on the North side of the rock, is a busy surf spot when the swell is running right, so that is on my shooting agenda. Then a little further North is Cayucos with a drone worthy pier.

Thanks! I am still an old fart novice at this drone stuff, but like everything, it takes practice, practice, practice.

Now to go a bit OT. How are you doing with C-19 stuff in your zip code with the holiday weekend looming?

I remain in splendid isolation out at the lake, but I try to get down to the coast at least once a week to relieve the cabin fever.

Agreed.

How different that looks to images like these:-

....but at least you C-19 free folks from NZ can take a trip to Europe. :-)

Did you ever manage to get the video to run, as it seems to have worked fine for other folks?

I remain in splendid isolation out at the lake, but I try to get down to the coast at least once a week to relieve the cabin fever.

We are doing very well here on the Monterey Peninsula- but that is
relative to other parts of this county. I am trying to remain very
careful, but I see slips all over the place.

My "ocean time" consists mostly of driving down sections of our
beautiful coast line.
