For some time, I've wanted to fly close to things, but simply have not had the courage to do it. Here are my first tries, all of which ended well. Wish there had been a little sunshine, but the sun just will not show up when I'm out with my Mavic Pro.

Some lovely shots FlyDK. I understand how you feel, I'd love to fly closer to the tree tops or under branches. I must give it a go sometime.

Wonderful video.  Flying close to objects makes for interesting videos  and worth a mall risk, especially when the objects are not too high.

It also will be worth a look. In fact, I decided moments later that I would never repeat that stupid "stunt". Even when I look at that clip, I can feel it all the way down to my precious parts. I did it - but never again.

You are all welcome to guess on what I did. It was completely legal, but in retrospect - quite dumbfounded.

Good work - sometimes putting the drone is areas that have a little more risk (through trees etc) makes the shot!

Thank you very much.
"Close to beach" is probably relative. But in comparison to many other places in the world, I am basically close to the beach, no matter where in my country I am. In fact, I'm too seldom at the beach - maybe I should visit it in the near future... with my drone, implicitly.

Lol sorry that was an autocorrect failure! It was meant to say “close to branch flier”

Very nice indeed, a little too close for comfort at times but it does make the shot I have to agree.

To those of you flying close to objects..... you're as mad as a box of frogs

No worries - I was shaking taking this LOL but after a little while you just focus on the image. These drones are amazing!

Certainly a nice picture and I agree with you. In the area I show in the video, I carefully checked the nearest environment before each shot. During the actual recording, I practically flew exclusively by focusing on the screen.

Nice flying!!

It is very nerving flying close to things. I tried flying near some large chimneys and water towers today and erred on the side of caution! The close up shots seem to provide great views!

Thanks for sharing.

Always trying to stay on the right side of the boundary between daring and stupidity. In my next video, however, I was extremely close to a drone disaster. More about it later.
