It’s good to be back… My family and I just returned from a week long stay in the Turks and Caicos where we basked in the warmth of perfect weather. It was a treat to shoot my kids on the sandy beach of Grace Bay and to fly my Phantom 4 Pro over the turquoise waters. But it also made me excited to do the same over Marblehead as soon as this Winter ends.
So far, this Winter hasn’t been very photogenic with little snowfall and mostly drab light. However, on the morning of January 8th, I had headed to downtown Marblehead after a light Winter storm to try my hand at aerial imaging of the snow covered streets for the first time. With the coming Winter storm tomorrow, I thought it would be a good time to end my brief hiatus with this image captured while flying over Old Town House.
I had just been flying over Washington Street and shooting toward Abbot hall when I returned to State Street and found the American flag waving above Old Town House. I adjusted the height of the drone to create this composition leading the eye down Washington Street toward Little Harbor. I’m hoping for more opportunities to shoot Marblehead with snow from these angles in the days to come.
