    This is a major icon in my town and has been photographed extensively. I ignore it for many years at a time and then try it again. Getting just 200 ft above the ground made for a view many have never seen. And being early got rid of all the people and cars. Phantom 4 Pro.

    A distinctly different viewpoint to be sure. Looks really nice without crowds and cars. Does the mission have iconography on the parking lot or is that not a parking lot in the first place?

    I sure like this Jeffrey, that’s a super cool mission and I have stopped there so many times.

    Since you are in the air, do you have a shot where you are over the courtyard looking straight down over it?

    Those old missions are really cool. I lived near the San Fernando Mission as a kid and was there many times. This is a great view of it and this is a very nice mission.

    It's a great perspective and unusual to see this type of building without crowds of people or cars. Good job getting there early!
