An aerial reconnaissance shot from 70 years ago, compared to a similar view from the Mini3Pro today
Not quite the same perspective. Maybe I should have taken the drone to its legal ceiling height.

Thanks Peter.  I think I can get a better comparison by moving the drone about 50m forward, and rising to maximum permissible height, then lowering the camera angle a bit.  I shall try again as it's only a short walk from home.

Pretty good attempt Mr B,   the old industrial building appears to still have held of the chimney?

Thanks David. Yes the chimney is still standing, but is long-defunct of course.
There are a couple of others around the town.

Brilliant comparison Mr. B.    Possibly a little more altitude would have been spot on.  All in all a really great job.

Thanks RDB.  I should have been 50m further forward and 50m higher, with the gimbal depressed a little more.  I can easily get back there and try again.

Thanks.  The sun finally came out but I’m in the double dog house. The route I choose was very muddy then we found ourselves in the middle of a cross country running race and all the paths were very nasty.  Hoping the weather lasts and we can take a run out to Aldeburgh  tomorrow,  last time was a washout.

Oh dear. She'll forgive you in about a decade.
I made the right decision to stay indoors today - although the are a few blue patches now,

Yes it is, luckily it was all fun and games.
Same here.
We had a glimpse of winter for 2 days, but now it is back to fall.

Yes. We have to expect our drone activities to be restricted for the next few months - but then Spring will be here again with all its opportunities.

You will have to work harder to find a gap in the rain for sure.

Here's a closer look at the mill and chimney. You can see that the mill nearest the river has been demolished, just leaving the chimney.

Thanks. Originally, all the mills along the riverside were water powered, gradually giving way to the Industrial revolution.  That shot was from the Pocket2, not the drone ( You can just see a corner of the bridge parapet, bottom right)

I was thinking about if you used a drone for this, since it looked like there was a bridge right there.

Curious.,  the chimney in the old shot looks taller but that doesn't appear to have been touched.
