    Phantom 4 + Litchi + finger rave lights + dark sky and a long exposure Cannon 5D. The wind was 20+ mph. and I almost backed out. It turned out ok. I had a thick low cloud cover. I think it will be better with a clear sky.

    AWESOME!!!!


    So what am I looking at? Did you send your bird on a mission from Litchi that had it go in that form and you burned in the LEDs from the ground with a different camera on a long exposure???

    Very cool.

    Yes ... Ground camera is a Cannon 5D Mark 2. I held the shutter open for the entire flight. I had 4 rave lights one on each arm of the P4. Here is a close up on the path. IMG_09062.jpg

    I have the C5MK2, it is an awesome cam! It JUST took a backseat to my brand new Sony A7r2 :) :) :)

    Awesome work. I dig all of it. Very clever. I might just have to steal that one and make my wife happy.

    That's an interesting concept, how long of an exposure was that?

    Sorry if you take offense for me messing with your work unprovoked or asked. If you want, I will remove it immediately. I was going to add some stars and clouds and such but I figured since this wasn't sanctioned, I'd keep it minimal :)

    Ok, I added some stars and the moon but it is SOOOO subtle. ;)

    I'm sorry. Seriously I'll take these down if you mind. I found what you did to be very clever. That's the kind of art I purchase. Something with thought and purpose.
