Early morning drone flight over local marina and hometown!

Just a quick post with some new drone photography.

I have had a lot to do lately and not been able to post updates on the drone blog. But since autumn is here and it is my favorite season for photography, my Mavic Pro drone has been launched several times to catch the colors of fall and early morning sunrises.

A few weeks back I woke up to an incredible sunrise with a great pink and orange sky. I knew it wouldn’t look like that forever and quickly picked up my drone bag and drove to a decent location to fly. Sadly the batteries were low and I hadn’t updated the drone for a while so it refused to take off. All I could do was to sit and watch the beautiful sunrise just with my own eyes.

A few days later I had learned from my previous mistake and the drone was updated, charged and ready to go. I flew over the local marina and hometown of Sandvika in Norway and took a few photos. I’m experiencing with creating interesting images with boats and the floatable docks, just like I did last winter as you can see in this post.

Hope you like the pictures – comment below if you do, or don’t. Next post with my own pictures will be from a bike ride in the forests in the outskirts of Oslo. A few of the pictures are also uploaded to my Instagram account, so be sure to follow me there as well. Thanks!

The small island called Tiny Denmark – Lille Danmark

This is a small local island next to the marina, called  Tiny Denmark, or just Denmark. It has a flagpole, often with the Danish flag. Very amusing for us Norwegians. This island also appeared in the post about winter in Sandvika I linked to further up. It used to house the local rowing club (Bærum Roklubb), but the buildings were moved in 1925 further away. The last buildings on the island were demolished in 1972. Source.

The local marina

Most of the boats and sailboats are set ashore waiting for winter storage and the cold season.

A catamaran anchored up in the ocean. During winter it freezes and you can walk to the local bigger islands.
