FROM BILL: “This tree was a special circumstance; I was out after a pretty snow and saw a tree way out in a field and wanted to shoot it, but it was behind a fence and way out in the field. I did not have my longer telephoto lens with me and then it dawned on me I could fly out to it!!! I flew the drone out across the field and then adjusted my altitude to get the composition and background I wanted and then shot it! I converted the shot to monochrome in post and my feet were dry! I didn’t have to climb the fence and then walk onto private property, and I got the shot!!!”
