Sorry if the last post stirred up some different opinions and got peoples backs up.
Here is my last video, just some easy viewing. It was my first decent length solo mission.

No controversy this time Vernon.
The film of the Manta Rays is just....... beautiful, no more to say.

Amazing photography. Great drone footage too I have a DJI Mavic Pro that I'm still learning to master, flying over water is still scary and I get vertigo when it flies too high

Really enjoyed the song by Ash Hendricks, for a minute there I thought you had found a Mazzy Star song I'd missed.

That is amazing Dex. Especially loved the ariel of the mantas dancing around each other.

How did you get them to do that??

Thanks Cisco. Yeah I just saw some movements in the water close to my boat and threw up the drone. The black one is a female and being chased by 3 horney dudes, bench the circling.

Hi wanderer. Thanks! I find flying over water easier, way less to hit than in land. If you crash from 100m up then it makes no difference land or water, she's a write off anyway.

Yeah ah I love that song too! Death in Vegas, mazzy star. Help yourself is one of my favorite tunes.

People seem to be loving this one


Its the one that I thought viewers would find super boring and it's been blowing up.

I dont use use a tracker no. I like being away from the world when I'm out there.

Thanks, great videos and good inspiration. Finally got around to watching and well worth it, will have to go and check out some of the older ones. And never mind the controversy, sometimes the facts of life can be confronting whether you accept them or not!

Hi 2bish

No, there is super fast internet in Switzerland;) Initially I was planning on editing and uploading each week while sailing but quickly realised that was a dumb idea as, A, I had almost no internet for 4 months between Honiara and Sorong, B, I didn't want to spend my time sitting in the cabin editing while there was excellent adventures to be had outside. So I decided to film all season and just spend the month of November editing everything. So the videos are a few months after the fact but I don't think it matters too much. Glad you like em!

Thanks! Glad you like the videos. There is definitely a progression, the older videos I didn't know how to sail or edit videos.

Hey Dex, true to your ethic, "Learning by Doing."

Ya gotta keep doing or ya won't learn anything and ya gotta keep learning or ya won't do anything!!!!....Life can be confusing.
