I attended the Honolulu Triathalon last weekend and brought my camera and drone with me. I got some pretty cool shots of the swimming chaos from above. Photos of a race like this have always been on my photography bucket list. I really want to get a drone video above the start of a marathon. Anyways, enjoy some triathalon photos.
Took the drone up super high at Ala Moana Beach Park last week and got some wide shots of the buildings downtown and the view looking toward Diamond Head.
I’m loving my mavic 2 pro. Every flight I get more comfortable with flying, landing and using all the remote control features. Highly recommended.
Diamond Head to Downtown
Diamond Head to Downtown Honolulu from my Mavic 2 pro. This was up about 1300 feet above Kahala beach park. The remote started getting laggy at this distance but i managed to snap this photo. Its so cool seeing these angles that you could previously only capture from a helicopter.
Flew the drone around Iolani Palace for a few mins before it was attacked by 30+ aggressive birds and I ran away. Heres a shot of the iconic Hawaiian flag flying high above the front of the palace.
I always try to take photos from odd or different angles. My Mavic 2 pro drone helps out a lot with that.
The Waikiki Natatorium
A few drone photos of the deteriorating Waikiki Natatorium. Built in 1927 and closed in 1963, it is a memorial to all who served in World War I.
