Auxier Ridge Bird's Eye Views

This morning was cool and crisp for July. I brought my drone with me for the first time. Hiked out Auxier Ridge and snapped these pics while on a snack break:

There are some restrictions when flying drone on public lands, I would check out the rules before flying.

Great pics, BTW

Very cool pictures.  I would be interested in what kind of drone and equipment you are using.  Before the quadrotor drones became available, I used a large slow flying rc plane to photograph scenic areas.  The plane could be disassembled into semi small pieces, but it was still huge by drone standards with a wingspan on almost 2 meters.  So, I really couldn't carry it into remote areas.  The good part was that it had a 45 minute to 1 hour flight time before the batteries died.  I would drive as close as I could get to the area I wanted to photo and then launched the plane.  It was not FPV but LOS.  I lost more than one doing this.  In Louisville, I would launch it from the area around the water tower and out over the Ohio River.  I flew it almost to the Indiana shore before turning it around.  I got some neat pictures but was always afraid of the plane going down in the river.  I have tried flying the same type of plane FPV but with my deteriorating eyesight (with age) the FPV googles are just too difficult for me to use; too many crashes.
