Jetty Ruins by Farhat Memon
As a new drone pilot, struggling with winds at 32 km/hour, this was certainly a challenging shoot. Launching the drone in such wind was nothing short of blind faith that it would return back to me ! I took a whole series of images but couldn’t really see what I was capturing due to the overhead sun and the sand in my eye! So I wrapped up the shoot and loaded the equipment in the car. In the quiet of the car I checked to see what the images looked like and I wasn’t overly pleased and I knew I wouldn’t be happy if I drove away without giving it another shot. So out i was again, battling the wind and sand and launching my new drone on a prayer. This particular image was captured during this second attempt.
