After the Rain

I haven’t flown the drone lately so I got it out twice today to capture upcoming rain storms but both times it started to rain by the time I was ready to fly. So I waited until after the second rain and flew for a short while mostly to get some shots of the landscaping in the back yard.

I took it out after dusk when the landscape lights came on but it was mostly too dark to see on the video so I just shot some evening sky at the end of the video.


Columbia Bottom Conservation Area

It was a beautiful day here in the St. Louis area.  We went to the Columbia Bottom Conservation Area where the Missouri River end and flows into the Mississippi River.  It’s in far North St. Louis County. They have some pretty popular sunflower fields there.  I shot a couple of videos with the drone while there.  Watch in full screen for better quality.


Storm at Dusk

We had some storms that rolled through the St. Louis area last night. They did quite a bit of damage in the outlying areas with trees uprooted, some roofs damaged and power lines down in various areas.  The sky was a weird shade of yellow/orange and between rains, I got the drone out and flew it for a short while from my backyard.  The video didn’t come out as cool as it actually looked but it was still interesting with the lightning in the distance.
