DroneRise – Ecologists, an astronomer, drones, DroneShield and the Kingdom of Navarre

Good morning! Today we have the headlines you may have missed over the weekend as well as an amazing short film showing off the historic beauty of the Basque landscape. The short film was shot with the DJI Phantom 4 Pro and a Nikon D5500 camera and I’m sure took lots of hours editing. Well worth a watch!

Today’s video is called “KINGDOM OF NAVARRE” and shows the historic beauty of the Basque landscape. The film was shot by Txema Ortiz using a Nikon D5500 and a Phantom 4 Pro. Here is what Txema had to say about the short film:

“Travel to the past, for places and buildings of past centuries, a small part of the wonderful heritage that Navarra has. Project started in early 2017, places such as: Castillo de Olite, Cerco de Artajona, Santa María Eunate Church, gazteluzarra ruins, Baigorri manor, Santa María de Iranzu, Javier Castle, Santa María de Ujué fortress church, Castillo de Santacara, Castillo de Monjardín.

Timelapse and Video with drone in 4K. Some 2500 photos and some 20 scenes with drone complete this video of 2:47 minutes duration. The equipment used has been a nikon d5500 with objectives sigma 18-35ART, tokina 11-16, … and the images of drone with a Phamton 4pro, and slider edelkrone, tripode, and many hours, hehe.”

A lot of work indeed, but well worth it. Enjoy!
