I am often asked how I find locations for my drone photos and videos. It’s assumed that I do a lot of research and plan trips based on the best locations to fly my drone.  The truth is that I don’t. I’m more likely to plan trips around cute animals I’d like to swoon over, bodies of water I’d like to swim in, cultures I’d like to be introduced to, and hikes I’d like to hike. Then wherever I may be, if it just so happens that the drone conditions are right... I might toss it in my bag to grab a few shots.  While in Seattle I wanted to get out into the fresh air and trees to do a fun hike, which is how I got on top of this wall. Places worth visiting and things worth doing just sometimes reward me with the opportunity to grab a cool drone shot 😇

Mount Shasta and haze from the California wildfires.  Shot on film, Thanksgiving week on a flight between San Francisco and Seattle.

I love to visit volcanoes and volcanic formations around the world, so I don’t know how I’d never heard of Fossil Falls (which is just a quick detour off of a road I frequently drive)! Waaaaaay back in the last ice age, a glacial river used to flow through here. A volcano erupted, lava happened, then the lava was shaped by the rushing river.  The glaciers and river are long gone, but the shapes they carved remain. If you know of any other cool volcanic places I should visit, please let this 🌋🤓 know!

In protected places where drones are not allowed, I’m happy to put my legs to work to get perspective.  Film photos from a day of exploring in the clouds. #LeicaM6

My favorite dreams were the ones where I could fly, feeling like I’d like to be a bird in Alaska. .

This glacier flows alongside the decommissioned copper mines, and the ice that I’m standing on may be a hundred years old. As I explored this otherworldly ice-scape, I wondered if I was walking on the same ice that miners had in the early 1900s. I thought about things from the past, both physical and intangible, that remain suspended in this ice. As this glacier recedes, relics of the past are sure to be found. I thought about my footsteps in the ice and my experience of that day, how they’ll be carried for a while by the glacier, before melting and evaporating away.

I usually prefer the verrrrrrrrry slooooooow reveeeaaaaal for my drone videos, but for something different, here’s that quick boomerang reveal (trying to do that @kraigadams style dronie). ________________________________
Thank you to all of you who have followed my drone adventures all of these years, I really appreciate you! Thanks for sticking around to watch my super slow videos, at a time when it’s nearly impossible to pay attention to any one thing for even 5 seconds.
________________________________
This was shot in Alaska, on a hike with a bunch of my bestie friends. We were hoping to walk right up to that glacier, climb on it, and then I’d fly my drone and get this epic reveal, sitting on the glacier. What we hadn’t planned for was that river, which was just a few inches deeper than my rubber boots are tall, and completely freezing cold. This dronie will just have to do for now, til I return fully  prepared and wearing waders... 😂  #furbythedrone

We were warned repeatedly that we had come to Alaska a few weeks too late, that everything would be closed for the year.  Whatever tours or hotels we missed were worth missing to be there for this; the most vibrant fall colors I’ve ever seen! I did not touch the saturation or vibrance sliders on this image, btw. #mavic2pro #furbythedrone

Katmai is the best place to watch brown bears in the wild, and camping here was the inspiration for our trip to Alaska! In honor of Katmai National Park’s “Fat Bear Week”, which ends today, here’s chubby Bear 812 catching one of many salmon we witnessed him devour! In the fall, bears gorge themselves on food in order to pack on as many pounds as possible to prepare their bodies for winter hibernation. @katmainpp #katmainationalpark

For significantly less than the price of a first class seat on a boring flight, you can fly (in style) to Denali for these first-class views. @talkeetnaair

Topping my list of incredible travel experiences— landing high up on a glacier below Denali, the tallest mountain in North America. This @talkeetnaair DeHavilland Otter is almost as good looking as the view she flew us to see (I’ll share more photos soon, or check my blog post on wrenee.com) ❤️💙

A distant reach of the same ocean that I’ve spent my entire life looking at, but looking nothing like I’ve ever seen it.
