a different view of the West ….

This is a photo that I have re-working many times in the past. This stallion whose name is Hollywood White is a horse that I have owned for the past 20 years. In this particular situation he was turned loose in the pasture and the photo was taken from about 200 feet away with a 200 mm lens. I had to crop it down significantly in order to get the look that I wanted and then converted it to black and white.

This is a drone video I did for Jim Brosche, a Texas realtor who specializes in upscale ranches and land. Last week, we went out to the Cotten Ranch in Morgan Mill, Tx to prepare a video for his new listing. In order to get a different perspective, we drove up to the top of the mountain and while doing so, I spotted a Bald Eagle circling overhead, but thankfully he had flown off by the time I had launched my drone (P4P). Bad Eagles have been known to attack drones.

This is a drone shot of a storm from my drone at 300′ of Cedar Hill which is 35 miles away from where I was. This was a very ominous looking downburst but I never heard of serious weather related damage from this area. I try and keep my drone ready to fly at all times just in case I come across a scene like this.

Driving along Singleton Blvd today in Dallas, through Trinity Terrace I spotted the Texas flag in stiff winds on the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. I had to go on across the river to make a u-turn and navigate some traffic to find a place to park and then standing in the middle of the crosswalk, took this picture.

This is a time-lapse that I took of the Dallas skyline last week. The night was cold and the clouds racing in from the south and the little lights on the upper left of the screen are Southwest Airline flights taking off fro Love Field. I plan to take a series of these shots over the next year and put them together in a collage. Too my photo site – http://scottgipson.zenfolio.com/
