    was in Newfoundland last week and there are hundreds of spectacular icebergs drifting along the coast. From cruise ship sized (on top of the water) to bathtub sized washing up on shore. Challenging flying in the wind and fog but some awesome shots. nerve-wracking!

    Great video. Kinda wish you could have trusted your Phantom to fly around the huge ones, would have made spectacular footage. But I do understand the stress factor. :)

    The wind was blowing offshore so very tense flying. I would have loved to fly into that arch but I'll use someone else's phantom for that shot!

    I wondered about that too. There was a huge peat bog behind me draining into the bay that turned the water yellow. I looked at my aerial video later and saw the brown water culverts pouring into the ocean. It did look a bit weird.
