[color=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.87)]The Tahkuna peninsula at the northern tip of Hiiumaa is the site of Estonia's tallest cast-iron lighthouse. The 43-meter high, state-of-the-art white tower with a green cupola was assembled in 1875 from parts manufactured in France. The slender, distinctively square-patterned lighthouse's various floors host exhibitions and installations, and the facility is used for theater performances and concerts. The lantern room and balcony are accessible via an elegant, characteristically French spiral staircase. A seaside hiking trail leads from the lighthouse to another landmark, the Tahkuna greatstone, and onwards into primal forest. Smart benches provide an overview of the lighthouse's history, the local nature, military heritage, and seafaring traditions. At the foot of the tower is a café and souvenir shop.  With the completion of the St Petersburg-Paldiski railroad, the importance of local ports increased, so lighthouses that helped improve navigation in the Gulf of Finland were prioritized. Designs for Tahkuna were drawn up at the same time as the Ristna beacon, and together they were meant to mark the Hiiu shallows. The tower's square-pattern look is due to its cast-iron construction, with specially shaped parts that cover joints in such a way as to keep moisture out of the interior. Cast-iron towers did not require buttressing, and rested on their own weight. The cast-iron modular tower was developed by English engineer Alexander Gordon, and his building method – first introduced at a Jamaican lighthouse in 1841 – quickly gained fame.  The Tahkuna lighthouse is well-preserved. Only the prismatic glass of the dioptric light source, damaged in WWI, was replaced with optical lenses ordered from England in 1920. The Tahkuna compound gives a good overview of the lifestyle at a shore-side lighthouse. Surviving outbuildings include a sauna from the second half of the 19th century, a stone kerosene store, a cellar, and a 20th century wooden residence and generator building.

Very cool light house, and a light house is a perfect subject to shoot with a drone. Your footage looks like it was all done while manually flying though. You can create even more cinematic effects with some of the auto features, like quickshot helix, if your drone has that. What kind of drone are you flying?

Hey! Yeah, it’s all manual. I got some of those features in my Mavic Air. But some time, when the wind is too strong, I control it manually in case wind will get stronger and I need to do an emergency landing. Anyway, have you got any suggestions on that flight modes? I tried those only few times. And I don’t like how they act. Maybe because I do something wrong

Sorry, I'm not qualified to give advice about the Mavic Air as my experience is with the Mavic Pro and Mavic 2 Pro, but I'm thinking many intelligent flight modes will be the same. The best advise I've got is just to play with those features, and learn them because some of them make shots look great. If you're nervous about the auto modes, remember there's a pause button on the remote to stop the drone in its tracks. Sometime I get nervous around tall trees, but your light house is nicely in an open area, perfect for experimenting.

Great! I will try! Saddenly, lighthouse is pretty far away from my home, but I’ll find something similar! Thanks again!
