A few of my pictures from our tour last week.

We started in Germany by bike over the Alps to Lake Garda in Italy. 6 days, over 400km and 10000 heightmeters.  For me the Spark is the perfect travel drone, super compact and very quickly ready for use.
Of course, the sensor comes here and there to its limits and the quality is not comparable to p4p or Sony@&Zenmuse.
I'm always amazed what comes out of this liittle thing, even in the mountains at 2500m altitude and strong wind he stands unimpressed on the spot.

Great shots - thanks for taking the trouble and effort to get them. Even though the Spark is light, the hills are steep and you were using muscle power instead of horsepower.

Thanks,

on the Spark: standard settings, white balance to "Sunny".
In Lightroom: only Dehaze+ (max20) for the spark jpegs and sometimes shadows up, export to 2048pix/sharpen for screen and (my prefer) 16:9 format for Landscapes

Servus!

Wow, realy stunning pics! I can only guess how hard it is to cross the alps with temperatures >30° celcius on a bike! I am quite often in the alps too. Also with 2 wheels but not powered by muscles But you are right - Sparky is quite perfect for traveling. It is with me on most motorcycle trips as its very handy and lightweight!

Servus "back" ;-)

Yes, it was already very hot this week.
On the middle picture you can see how we had burned our arms and knees on the second day.
But all the effort was worth it, great tour and so many impressions.

Many thanks for the positive feedback, I'm glad you like it.
It was very interesting to see how the landscape in the Alps changed.
From lush green valleys to barren stone fields in the mountains, the almost caribbean colors of mountain lakes, from glacier streams to deep black ponds

Amazing post! Is this really with the spark? Do you change your camera settings or you let them in automatic?
