A day out yesterday for the traditional Good Friday Grey Arrows Blackpool Tower Sunrise meet-up!

An early start for the 545am sunrise, and a cold and windy day - thankfully not gusty though!

Some stunning footage captured, a good catchup with friends and a chance to meet some new fols too, and a sunrise flight that I am happy with - all done within VLOS and within the CAA Drone Code!

Awesome views of the tower and sunrise, in close-up.
Did you miss a trick there, I wonder?
I was expecting you to line up the sun through the cage at the top at some point.

Amazing footage.  I love how you framed the Blackpool Tower with the sun directly behind it around the 2:40 mark.  Perfect choice in background music.

Thanks... I was at maximum height - you can see the sign in one of the upper windows that says 390 feet with a line - so I couldnt go up any further to capture the low sun in the top area, would have loved to, but it would have meant waiting a good while for it to get higher up before I could capture it, and as we were with friends....

Thank you kindly, I had a hard time choosing the music before I started the edit, I had this piece earmarked for something later in the year, but the footage demanded something as good as this music... May re-use it in the future, may not..

You're very welcome.  Nothing wrong with reusing the music for a future video.  Hope you have a great weekend.

That's a pity. It could have been worth waiting for under other circumstances.
Ah well, can't win 'em all

Nice sunrise!

Is that an industrial tower of some sort or is it open for mere mortals to climb up there for a looksie?

Thanks, it is a tourist landmark, built in Victorian times for mere mortals to ascend and see the view, they do have lifts that go up there, but I haven't been up the Tower myself - have flown a light aircraft 700ft above it though back when I did my PPL at the local airfield, Squire's Gate...

That was absolutely amazing, was that taken at maximum permitable height as I thought the Blackpool Tower was slightly higher than we are allowed to fly ?
Fantastic nevertheless well done

Thanks... yes, most of it was taken at 120m - 390ft above the total spot on the promenade in front of the tower - I would have loved to fly over the top and get some other viewpoints, but I stuck to the CAA rules - one of the windows has a sign stating 390ft (120m) which can be seen in some of the shots if you watch on a large screen...

Thanks for the comment, glad it was enjoyed...

Nope, I shoot in normal mode, then colour grade it very slightly in DaVinci Resolve - that seems to work for me, and I am getting results I am happy with and people are remarking on, so as it isn't broken I don't plan on fixing it
