Got this weird angle of Magic Island from the drone. I was flying much lower than usual because of the low flying tour helicopters blazing past at 100 feet every few minutes. But sometimes being constrained helps you be more creative. I’d never seen this angle before.
My dad has a big ol motor boat and took us for an amazing ride today. We cruised around in front of Waikiki and enjoyed the view. It was unfortunately a little too windy to swim today.
I brought my drone but forgot to charge the batteries. Ugh. But got some photos with the Canon 5d.
Flew the Mavic 2 up pretty high and got this shot head-on of Diamond Head Crater on Oahu. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this angle because it doesn’t show that Waikiki silhouette view. It gets a little scary flying the drone around with so many low-flying helicopters blasting around.
We can also see Koko Crater in the background from this angle too.
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.
The world famous Waikiki Beach at sunrise from a drone.
Lecturing the beggars in Waikiki.
Some photos from the Mavic 2 Pro drone of Waikiki Beach.
But don’t overdo it.
One of the best beaches on the South Shore of Oahu. Taken from a Mavic 2 Pro drone.
The haul from a long day of work.
