Iowa Summer Sunsets

Here are a few more aerial sunsets. This is the perfect time of year to fly in Iowa (mid-summer). It’s time for the state’s annual RAGBRAI bike ride, and the Indianola Hotair Balloon Festival; The Hotair Balloon Classic. I take advantage of the low winds to get out and capture some great images of our midwest views.

A Busy Year

This has been such a busy year. I’ve been neglecting this blog for way too long. I’m going to make a plan to start checking in more often and providing some updates.

I’ve been traveling a lot for work : California, Denver, Dubuque, Moline, and two weeks in the UK (Exeter, Langar, Nottingham and London). I have yet to process all of the photos, but I will; I promise.

I’ve been doing a lot of aerial work as well lately, honing my skills. The FAA recently announced Part 107, giving us remote pilots a certification to make things 100% legal and legit. As a private pilot, a part 61 holder, I have an express path to certification but it will require a biennial flight review and a medical checkup; along with a TSA background check and some FAA forms. I plan on getting this as soon as it’s released, in September.

Here is a project that I’ve been working on with the City of Urbandale. This is the 100th Street bridge project; a makeover lasting the better part of a year now.

Des Moines Sculpture Park

We had some friends in town last weekend, and decided to have an amazing brunch at Americana – Highly Recommended!  Directly across the street from Americana is the Pappajohn Sculpture Park, Downtown Des Moines. A great place to burn off a few calories from brunch; be sure to check it out if you are visiting Des Moines!

 

 

 

Waukee Easter Egg Hunt, 2016

Our local Parks & Recreation team put together another successful Easter Egg Hunt at Waukee’s Centennial Park. I captured some aerial photos and video again this year.

Here is the video that I created for the Parks & Rec. It was a nice volunteer opportunity for me. My Aerial Website can be found at http://dsm.photo
