There are many things wrong with this photo and yet I'm posting it anyway. Why? Well it's the best picture yet from my Phantom 4P drone. And I also set an altitude record just before I took it! 153 feet AGL (that's above ground level). I am allowed to go up to 400 feet with my current license, though this drone, according to the specs, is able to go up to 1500'. That's a long ways up.

Anyway, my drone offers a new venue for my photography but right now the big problem is South Dakota wind and weather, which aren't all that conducive to a newbie learning to fly a drone and take photos.

Incidentally, this is a selfie. Can you see the big grin I'm sporting?
