DJI Mavic 2 Pro – PRETTY TEAM Outbound In Winter Golden Hour Light



January 30th 2019, a beautiful winter’s day with temps ranging from 0c to -2C and dead calm. The coast was covered in snow to sea level complimented by pristine polar blue skies. I pre-warmed the drone batteries then flew out to intercept bulk carrier Pretty Lady which was outbound from Lough Foyle destined for Liverpool. The flight went perfectly and I was amazed how much battery life I got despite the cold temperature. The sunset golden hour light was beautiful against the cold blue air. The highlight was seeing snow on the cargo hold doors and on Binevenagh in the background. Vessel details…

    Fantastic flight and footage Martin, great light and glitter path on Lough Foyle and the ship!! Beautiful capture of the snow on the hills of Donegal and on Binevenagh – I think you have something quite rare with the snow on the cargo doors, wouldn't have thought that happens too often on a vessel leaving the lough!!

    Great work Martin! I've been absent but very nice to catch up on this post. Looks like you have the camera settings well and truly sorted on the new baby. It handled the challenging light conditions superbly! How are you finding gimbal stability and horizon maintenance, especially in Sport mode? Now that I've said the nice things…you're going to hate me for correcting you, but it's actually the "Pretty Team", not the Pretty Lady. Maybe you're showing your one-track mind there Martin! Built 2013, Marshall Islands flag, and slightly smaller. Details details…I know! Great video mate, pease keep them coming.
