Peaceful Frozen Mountain Dell Aerial 4k Video

Mountain Dell is beautiful with the frozen lake and colorful sunset over the Wasatch Mountains. It also makes a great place to fly a drone with the wide open spaces and not many people. I hiked down to the water/ice edge and launched the drone from a flat surface on shoreline. I flew up canyon towards the fjord, around the perimeter of the lake, up to 400 ft, down to the damn and back. I landed the drone out on the ice once which was more nerve racking than expected because it was too far away for me to see and the video signal went out when it touched down. I think the signal went out because it was so low on the horizon. I pushed up on the throttle and the video feed comeback just a few feet off the ice. That was enough to scare me out of doing that again at any distance I can’t see the drone. I edited this 4k footage to the song Homeward Bound by Lights and Motion, license purchased from musicbed.com. You can see more of my videos on my Vimeo page www.vimeo.com/joncracroft.
