Ambrières les Vallées is an attractive small town in NW France, straddling the Varenne river, whose charm is just starting to be enhanced

by the colours of Autumn.

The whole of France is littered with no-fly zones for UAVs and this town is no exception.

BUT, there is no restriction on flying over the river. SO, I decided - to quote Captain James T Kirk -

to boldly go where no man has gone………..before.

Lovely French hamlet.. Ha

Yes, you had to go there didn't you? ;-)

I love the new series "Discovery", which is what you have done here. Thanks.


I hope that you will continue to explore the possibilities.

I'm sure you would enjoy it - and everyone should visit Paris at least once in their lifetime.

Very nice! The scenery could have easily been edited to I minute or under IMHO. Thanks for posting.

I had considered doing the flight at Warp Factor 8, but the Dilithium Crystals were running low and power had to be conserved for The Voyage Home ;)
But seriously, I think such a photogenic spot deserves more than a fleeting glimpse. The original footage took 6 minutes to complete, edited down to  about 50%.
I could have wished for a sunnier day, and the ND filters which are on the Xmas list.
Perhaps next Spring will bring another visit to The Undiscovered Country

Yes, it is beautiful scenery worth more than a fleeting view.

Well done Blériot53, we get to appreciate a view of the town.

I suspect Klingons are now after your P4

By the time the Klingons arrived I had time-warped to another Galaxy
But, like Arnie, I'll be back.
There are lots of aerial video opportunities in the area, that I've plans to overfly.
My recent posting "Confluence" was shot just a couple of Kilometres downstream,

It was a tricky moment, dropping down between the trees to the river but it was worth it
