Vol XIX – #333 -Shoreline Drone Run

(Report by Jim) I was working most of the day and did not get out, but I have plenty of material from the last few days to work through. This is the current shoreline from a mile south to a mile north of Leland. I’ll be combining this with another run this Summer to compare the difference. Hopefully, it will… Read more »

Vol XIX – #332 -Avoided Crashing the Drone

(Report by Jim) Today was a workday and was sunny for a bit, but started snowing later in the afternoon. Photos today are from yesterday when it was quite beautiful out most of the day. The first photo was taken on Macksey Rd. coming back from Lake Leelanau. I managed to get the drone fixed and up over North Beach… Read more »

Vol XIX – #199 – A Colorful Day

Report by Jim Today was a day for having the drone up so I headed down French Rd and Gauthier, Lake Leelanau and up Bay Hill for some shots.

For some obscure reason after being advised not to use the steel, IH Fort Wayne used it anyway.  The result was 100% of the… Read more »

Vol XVII – #067 – Meggen’s Monday

  An elevated view: last week I had an amazing opportunity – to fly in a seaplane over my favorite place on earth! Inspired and windblown (yes, the windows were open the entire flight; remove the lens hood…). Many thanks to Brian Bishop for graciously making it happen and to NMC for the use of the sea plane. I hope… Read more »

Vol XV #144 – It Was a Cloudy Sunny Day

   It was a very quiet and calm morning on the beach with a little drizzle in the air.  Gee, I think I said that yesterday.  We had a nice overnight rain and the was fresh and clean, actually the air is fresh and clean every morning.  Today must be Biscuit’s day because he’s in every photo except the aerial. … Read more »
