    This is stunning Jim, and what a waterfall that is.

    This is a pretty sweet video. I like the view, I think the only suggestion I would suggest is it would be nice if you could do two or three zoom in’s where the drone drops down and swoops close to a waterfall. Of course it’s probably easier for to suggest it then do it?

    That was 2:44 minutes well spent. Views of waterfalls most will never get to see without an aerial platform like this.

    Thanks for sharing it.

    I really enjoyed that, Jim. Such isolation and beauty. Smooth movements and great angles. Now I want to do more video with mine! I stopped making vids a while back to concentrate on stills.

    What is the location?

    Thanks for all the nice comments guys. It’s well worth the trouble carrying the drone for the fun and excitement of the unique views it affords. Jim, you are spot on with the comments about some closer views. Normally I would do that, but I’d gotten a late start that day and didn’t want to worry my wife, so didn’t have the time.

    Jeffery, this is up the mountain loop highway in the central cascades.

    Pepper, I use a DJI Mavic 2 Pro and love it.
