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. I was planning on leaving for Illinois today, but lingered a bit too long. Tomorrow should be stunning as well, so I’m heading down M22 to Pt. Betsie and Frankfort, and… Read more »

Vol XIX – #124 – Sunday Birthday

(Report by Jim) Water was glass on the North end of Lake Leelanau this morning, so I took out the kayak for a few miles.

Vol XIX – #97 – Critters

(Report by John) Today we bring you critters encountered during a morning on the Leelanau peninsula. I took a bike ride from Burnham Wood up to the Grand Traverse Lighthouse and encountered deer on E Woolsey Lake Road, Sandhill Cranes at the Woolsey Memorial Airport, and upon my return a monarch caterpillar having a feast on the milkweed in Mom’s… Read more »

Vol XVIII – #344 – Aerials Revisited

(Report by Jim) More shots from drone day on the North side. I’m in the process of getting my commercial certification, which will open up possibilities to do paid work. There are so many possibilities to take amazing photos with drones, but I will not fly them in state or national parks without permission, or fly it around people. There… Read more »

Vol XVIII – #343 – Spring Cracks

(Report by Jim) Took my daughter down to Suttons Bay for some portraits. Actually, SHE took me down to take portraits of her! Looks like some new docks are ready to go in at the harbor. I took a walk around on them, pretty solid! My panorama didn’t turn out exactly like I expected, but it was an experiment, anyway…. Read more »

Vol XVIII – #342 – Droning and Boating

See the video here: (Report by Jim) The Leland Report has a new toy. Took the Phantom 4 drone out onto the beach North of town up to around Golfview Dr. Also met Mike, one of the ice boaters today out for a run off Fudgie Beach.
