The Drone

A few weeks ago I was down at Fforest Fields Campsite and as it was a nice sunny day I thought a few photos would be in order from around the lake. While watching the swans I heard a noise, realising it was something flying I looked up to see if it was visible. After a few moments I spotted a drone and nearby the owner flying it. 

As you can see a nice day

Looking for the drone and spotted the owner
 The drone coming into land. I had a chat with him about flying it and he had been doing some views of the campsite. I left him and wandered off round the lake

Past one of the swans

and a couple of Canada Geese

 The geese looking at me cautiously. I decided to leave them to swim around with out me bothering them and went off for a cup of tea

  1. The swans are lovely to see. It's always good to give the geese their space- especially this time of year.

  2. seems like a nice place for walks and shooting.

  3. The photography they can get from the drones is amazing but I must admit they can spoil a peaceful moment! Although your swans look pretty chill!

  4. Not sure how I feel about the use of drones especially by the general public. In the hands of someone who knows what he's doing then fine, otherwise I can only envisage problems. Saw Alan Rickman's last film a few days ago 'Eye in the sky'. A very good thriller showing what drones can do.

  5. Looks like a nice place for birdwatching there. We saw a drone at the beach in central California in March. Interesting to see them flying around. The gulls were intrigued by it.
