May try it myself ahead of a trip to iceland to do some more photography.

Thats  special landscape alright and nice flying.

It my be my rubbish monitor in work but the clouds had a purple tint to them on the edges, I wondered if it was the result of boasting the saturation for the grass. But as I said my work monitors are not known for their colour accuracy!

Look forward to more great videoes.

Thank you Oliver.  Magnificent flying, composition and very fitting music.
I am staying on Lake Windermere for a week in September.
Have you any tips/locations you could share?
Any local flying restrictions?  I know the RAF often fly very low amongst the hills.

Thanks!

There is a bit of blue, I'm no expert at color correction but I gave it a shot. I quite liked that effect though

Thanks very much for the feedback! I loved this song, in fact I planned the song before the shots haha.

Oh very nice, nice little town! Enjoy!

As for locations...Google Maps is your best friend. Not only is Street View available, but if you turn on "terrain" mode, you can also see where the mountain areas are.
Search Fell Foot Farm on Google Maps. About 100m East of it, there's a fork in the road. One road goes to Hardknott Pass, and the other leads into a fantastic valley - I recommend visiting both. That was where I took maybe 70% of this footage. I didn't visit enough of the East of the lake District, which I do regret, but you'll have much more time than me to explore. Have fun!

As for flying restrictions, I don't think there are any "no-fly" zones within the park itself. You can confirm that here:
http://noflydrones.co.uk/map-drone-no-fly-zones-uk/

The only jet I saw was on the M6 on the way back, took me by surprise haha. Be aware, and don't fly too high, and you should be safe. Watch out for the floods of tourists, you'll need to find a quiet place to take off from.

Have fun!

No problem. To post video, take the full URL of the YouTube video and just paste it in to your post. The DJI forum software automagically turns it into an embedded video for you.

Beautifully shot and put together.  I used the same phantomfilters ND16 on my shoot the other day. They are cheap but very, very good.

Bowness on Windermere is one of the prettiest towns l've seen.
Yes, the RAF jets go rocketing through the valleys at low altitude, but you'll hear them coming
l'll look forward to more videos from this area from Oliver and you.

Perhaps the filter added the tint.
