Lake City, Colorado From Above

January 01, 2018  •  2 Comments

In September I won free rental on a Dji Mavic Pro drone. I picked it up in Denver at the Dji store and instantly headed to Lake City, Colorado, my preferred playground. It took about ten minutes for me to remember what the salesman had told me in the brief tutorial before I left the store and figure out how to get it in the air, but from there on it was a lot of fun to use. All of the photos below were taken with it. I didn’t really test out the video features because although I’m a photographer and supposed to be up on technology, I’m a true Luddite when it comes to filming.
The genius marketing from Dji worked wonders on me because I just received my new Dji Phantom 4 Pro in the mail!
