Remote aerial photography
Frozen Harbor: Aerial video of frozen ocean harbor in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, MA captured with an RC hexacopter
Using a small monitor to frame his shots, the flight lasted about 12 minutes and was created around sunset at Wellfleet Harbor in Cape Cod. "I could not pass the opportunity to get this footage...The ice was torn by the tides, creating this beautiful iceberg mosaic in the water and on land."

On our way home from Cape Cod, we noticed these icebergs scattered along the Wellfleet Harbor in Cape Cod, Massachusetts (Wellfleet Oysters anyone?). With one battery and about 15 minutes of sunlight left, I could not pass the opportunity to get this footage, and took my RC hexacopter out for another flight. This ocean harbor is on the bayside, protected from waves, and it's shallow edges froze over during a cold-snap (infamous "Polar Vortex"). The ice was torn by the tides, creating this beautiful iceberg mosaic in the water and on land
