2024 – Summer’s Here

Greetings visitor. Thanks for stopping by.

Whilst nearly gone, June can be a test for us Canadians… can be cool, wet, or this year, hot and dry… and that means forest fires are spinning up, not cool. But that’s Canada for you. Here’s a series of videos from various times in the recent past. Be sure to watch these full screen, and visit our YouTube channel for many more. Sharing a like will help us along also, and please subscribe if you like these nature vistas.

Another visit to the Ottawa River, never gets old.

End of April – original music from some of our new tools.

A recent Mavic 3 Classic flight, the Ottawa river valley never ceases to captivate, this time on the Quebec side.

New Drone Hardware

So we finally made the jump to some newer tech… The Mavic 3 Classic will provide us with a clearer view from the sky and allow for better overall imaging. Watch the YouTube channel for new output

Looking back at past seasons…. see below….

Serious smoke from various fires in the area. What a year it has been so far for forest fires.

Our Lupins are Rocking. That Bee is saving the planet too… Video made with GoPro Hero 10

Making the most of a dull day’s footage… and some darkish music created just for it.

Dear Visitors.

March 13th, 2014 was the date of the passing of a great friend of ours, Mr. Don Sklepowich a very unique and special guy who amazed, inspired, mentored, and amused us. An exceptional audio engineer and producer, cool drummer, and all round friend to many many people. He is greatly missed still, 10 years later. See the Memorial page and the video below for some thoughts and moments. Feel free to use our Contact form if you wish to get in touch for more details not published here. RIP Don!

Don – 2023

Winter’s here….

Winter is bearing down on our area… it keeps showing up then leaving then coming back!

The Old Farmhouse

Had to capture this old building, a couple more years and it will probably collapse.

Best watched on YouTube, 4k resolution.

More GoPro Video…. see the YouTube channel for even more.

Had to stop and grab this footage recently, the light was just right and the stabilization did not suffer… filmed at 4k60.

A recent find…

We discovered a video compiled a while back based on our fallen comrade Don’s old studio setup. We are sharing here in his honour. We collaborated on this music, which was created in Garage Band of all things…. lol. All that pro gear was not setup when we recorded it…

Drone News

Summer has dwindled, and fall weather permitting we will be making more flights before the snow flies, still smarting from the whole pandemic thing – Covid really spoiled the fun…. Here’s another recent flight, using the anamorphic lens accessory from Freewell. 4k60fps Best click on the “Watch on Youtube” button for the full effect.

Other Video News

We’ve recently acquired a GoPro Hero 10 to add terrestrial video imagery to our drone stories, and will be sharing those on YouTube as we go along. Here’s two examples, one TimeWarp and one slowmo… best watched on YT full screen.

This was a 35 minute drive compressed into 2 minutes. No speeding tickets were issued though!

The SlowMo video was tripod mounted, showing off the depth to which the Hero 10 can slow things down. The Hero 11 is now out, but we are not jumping on that anytime soon.

Thanks for visiting. More to follow.
