Flying around Butte College with the DJI Phantom

I've had the opportunity to fly my DJI Phantom drone a number of times, but I haven't had the opportunity to post many images or videos.

Last month I was able to fly it around Butte College one weekend, and got some wonderful images and video.

Here's a short video flying high above the campus.

And here are some images from the flight:

Spring in the Foothills

It's been a bit since I've posted. I've been working hard, but this spring has been difficult because my mother became ill and passed away about a month ago. She was 88 and had a wonderful life She was alert and surrounded by family in her last days, and I know she was happy.

Cattle graze under green hills near Paskenta.
However, spring waits for no man, and I was able to get out and grab a few images of spring in the foothills west of the Sacramento Valley before the heat came on and dried everything out.

Images all taken in early April.
