    Frozen Harbor: Aerial video of frozen ocean harbor in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, MA captured with an RC hexacopter

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     notadrone1 is a training manager from Canton Connecticut who creates aerial videos for fun and also as a part-time freelancer. This video was shot using a DJI F550 hexacopter equipped for AV with a Gopro Hero 3+ Black and telemetry downlink.

    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."

    - taliaday, CNN iReport producer

    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
