We had heavy fog down here this morning so I nipped off to one of the highest spots on the Island to try and get above it with the stills camera but I needed the extra 400ft that the drone gave me to get a good view from above it.

The year looks promising from up there Barry.
Love those colours and how the lower layer of clouds almost make terrain/ foreground for the upper skyscape.

It's a different world up there. The third appeals to me the most.
Any idea what the strange flare like effect directly above the sun in the cloud is in the fourth picture? Looks like the light from the rising sun reflection off the cloud.

I assume it was a load of ice particles picking up the rays but it isn't rainbow coloured as I have seen before. It's in all the images taken around that time in that spot of the sky when taken from varying angles so it definitely isn't an optical flare. Weird!

Yep, it's not camera or lens related, definitely some kind of phenomenon like a sun dog sort of thing. Light can do strange things when passing through a medium as I'm sure you are aware.

Beautiful set Barry. Getting good use out of your drone.

I'me guessing you could see nothing but clagg on the ground?
he drone really is cool for breaking free of that, when there are no huge peaks to slog up.

The whole island was under a blanket Steve, the top was only a couple of hundred feet above the highest point which usnt saying much as we top out at about 350ft!

True. Tho stations on there do well with the sea path, and get good propagation, which is bothersome for me lol

Beautiful POV Barry! Good to see that you're getting a glimpse of what we see regularly in Oz. :)

Nice shots Barry, have you done the new A2 CofC as all the drone laws changed on 1st Jan, you can now work commercially with a drone with the new A2 CofC and only cost's around £100 for a 5 year certificate rather than the old Pfco which could cost up to £2000.

Like being on a plane.

Lovely.

I prefer 3 without the sun being in the shot
