⛰ If the views I saw in the Rainbow Mountains were increeeedible, imagine a birds’ eye view. Naah, you don’t even have to imagine, here it is. 🌈 Looks like a painting I know. . but trust me, it’s not. No filters no photoshop, no nothing - just pure, wild & colorful Mountains. 🎨 Snow, sulfurs, iron, cooper, grass and clouds. Some of the “colors” Nature has chosen to paint this one. .Amazing 🙌 🇵🇪
On the Roofs // We continue our aerial journey through the picture-perfect village of Hallstatt, Austria. This shot is taken a touch further south from the shot I shared yesterday, which showcased the old town and the famous church at its centre. Today's shot focuses on the colourful row of houses that connect the old town with the newer section of the town that you can see in the distance to the left. To the right of the centre, is a snow-covered parking lot. This is a favourite spot for photographing those colourful houses from the ground level - I'll post a ground-level shot in my Instagram Story today. Once you'll see that, you'll know what I mean (because no doubt you have seen a shot taken from that angle a million times over!). I must admit - with a small degree of guilt - that I realized AFTER my drone flight that there are quite a number of signs posted around Hallstatt proclaiming it to be a "no drone zone". The sign goes on to explain that Hallstatt "is not a museum", and cites the right of its residents to privacy. Even without this warning, I knew that flying a drone around such a busy spot, if handled without courtesy and consideration, could get me into trouble. Hence, I deliberately chose a spot quite a distance from the old town as my takeoff point (I found a small island attached to a park towards the very southern end of town, nearly 1km away). I stayed above water most of the time. Drones can be noisy, and I find that they are generally audible if flown below 100 metres, so I kept the Mavic at that altitude or above for most of the flight. I encountered no trouble and as far as I know, I don't think I bothered anyone either. So here's my question to you - is it fair and reasonable for Hallstatt to declare itself to be a "no drone zone", or do you think it is a matter of commonsense - that is, the drone operator needs to exercise courtesy and consideration, but should not be subject to a blanket restriction?
