Checking out my local abandoned bunker from the air.
In addition to flying drones, my other hobby is finding abandoned places with lost history. These places could be anything from abandoned farms, hospitals, theme parks, vehicles or bunkers.
In close vicinity to where I live is an old bunker from WW2. The main entrance is closed, but the emergency exit is open. To get there I had to walk up a steep hill with tons of loose rocks. The stones are actually the remains of the excavation of the bunker. The bunker is empty, consisting of two long corridors with lots of storage rooms. It is completely dark and there are spiders everywhere.
If you are interested in how the bunker looks from the inside, check out my other blog site Left To Decay.
This post should be about drone photography. I took off from a small flat surface just in front of the entrance. This particular day was very windy. I got warnings on the display of the controller, but I continued. The drone with 4K camera on a stabilizing gimbal is surprisingly stable during windy conditions. I have experienced that before and I’m impressed.
Unfortunately, it found it very difficult to portray the steep hill on my pictures. It just looks very flat… In general, I’m not as satisfied with these pictures, as the forest pictures in the last post.
But practice is practice. It’s all about flying and getting time in the air. 🙂
