    We visited Lake Powell in June and I brought the Phantom along. It is such a spectacular landscape...although you have to get comfortable flying over water in order to capture it. :)

    I hope you enjoy it.

    This place reminds me to the original Planet of the apes, when the spaceship lands.
    Like the mood what you did there.
    How did you do the sky pictures at the end?

    Here is a shot I took, and that scene from the original Planet of the Apes which was actually filmed in Lake Powell:



    I believe the final scene from the movie Gravity was also filmed there.

    The star photos were shot using a DSLR on a tripod, with a 30 second exposure.

    Nice video. BTW, some scenes from the movie John Carter were filmed there, too.

    Really cool. This place was on my list to visit for that. My Dad and I had some amazing fishing there years back. We both caught our limit in a few hours.
