I took the drone up on this day as the weather had been gorgeous, with no clouds in the sky, but as the sun fell out of the sky at the end of the day, the cloud formations came, and they looked stunning, it wasn’t until I got the drone in the air I realised how nice the sky looked – I did some photos and videos, for now here is a 16 shot panorama of the sunset over Manchester.
It was my Birthday on the 18th of July, so on the weekend we decided to have a few days in Wales and see some more of the beautiful Welsh scenery.
We visited Bala, Porthmadog, Ffestiniog (on the train and by car), Criccieth, Ruthin and various other places in-between.
On the way to Porthmadog, our first stay we called in to some fisheries we have visited before, and had lunch, we met a lovely older couple called Barry & Sue and ended up chatting for ages to them – It’s always nice to meet new people and learn about them (there was no space for them to sit when they arrived so we invited them to our table, a nice habit we have, and it has made us some great friends here and in Asia, you should try it 🙂 )
Here are a few photos and then a 9 minute video of the journey, from the train, the car, the drone and the DSLR.
I hope you enjoy the photos and video and look forward to your comments.
I’ve not added any 360° photos here before as they were impossible to get into WordPress, but now, thanks to Kuula, I can add them to my Blog, which means you can have them in your blogs and pages as part of my Web Design through my work (www.mobilepcrescue.co.uk)
Use your mouse to look around and use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out.
Please let me know what you think….
As many of you know, there are fires on the moors over Stalybridge, all around Carrbrook. I tried to get some photos today but the Police were there stopping people, which is really a good thing as it keeps us safe. I didn’t manage to fly the drone either as there are helicopters all around dropping water, so I obviously wanted to ensure that my drone was not in anyone’s way, so it was grounded. I may try again tomorrow from a different location.
For now here are some photos of the area and some photos of the surrounding areas.
If you do go to try and see the fire, please keep the roads safe and park out of the way so any emergency vehicles can get through. Stay Safe!

It took just over 2 months from the fire to the entire building being a pile of rubble.

I was at work until this afternoon and decided to do a little gardening while the sun was shining. Imagine my surprise when I spotted a Dragonfly sat atop my now headless tulips. After a few minutes he was still there so the camera was grabbed, at this point it had my most used Sigma 18-70mm Art Lens installed, a few shots later, he’s still there, so then I ran in and grabbed my Canon 300mm Lens with IS, I cracked off some more shots and then decided to get the Manfrotto tripod and the 100mm Sigma Macro lens, these shots are of course the best. I managed to get very close to him, he flew off a few times but came back, I even got that on video but the lens was on auto-focus so messed up a bit. I have been back out to get some better video but he’s nowhere to be seen, I just hope he returns tomorrow 🙂

Last weekend (20th May 2018) at Howarth’s 40’s weekend, I was looking for this girl, I had almost given up on the hope of finding her when whilst sat having a brew, I noticed a girl behind my parents, I was not 100% sure it was her, so asked my Dad and he said he thought it may be her too, so I asked her, and YES, it was her 🙂 WOW, what are the chances? I now would like her to see this but forgot to ask her name – bloody crazy I know :p
Over the past few weeks I have been filming the demolition of Ray Mill for Lord Demolition from Oldham. It’s been great to see the professionals drop a fire damaged mill, and it’s also been upsetting as I worked there when Warmshield had it. I have literally hours of video …
We had a nice drive out on Saturday with friends while the weather was great.
We went to a place we found the weekend before on the way to Wales with lovely fields of Gold (I think it’s Rapeseed?)
This is my favourite photo of the day 🙂
