Winter Aerial Photos of Our Farm
Here are some aerial photos of our Norwegian Fjord horse breeding farm that I took in the winter time with a 110 pocket camera attached to the side of my electric Sig Riser 100 sailplane. More details on the plane and camera can be found in my article, A Collection of Aerial Photos. I also have a page of summer photos.
These are some of my earliest attempts at R/C aerial photos, and they are now a bit outdated, since we’ve expanded the barn and built a new riding arena since the time these were taken.
A view of our house, garage, and barn, taken from the west looking east, at about 400ft altitude. You can see some horses just to the right of the barn.
Another view, from the south looking north, also at about 400ft. You can clearly see the areas that we’ve cleared of snow, and some high snow banks at the edges.
This is our driveway, with fields on either side of it. This view is looking south-west, from about 500ft or so. The driveway is partly snowed in. I’d cleared it the previous day, but there were strong winds overnight. At the top left is my mother-in-law’s house (at the side of the photo) and our garage (at the top). And there in the very middle of the photo, am I.
The view looking north-west, from about 800ft. The line that starts at the bottom right corner is the road we live on. It goes west, and then north-west to get around the lake (visible at the left side of the photo). The buildings at the bottom right corner are our neighbour’s farm. Two more farms are visible on the other side of the road.
The view looking south, from about 800ft. The rectangular area at the bottom left is our back field. The large white band across the middle is the lake (you can faintly see the snowmobile trails in it). More farm fields stretch into the distance to the south.
Here we are looking to the west, from about 500ft. At the top left are some cottages along the lake. To the right are two trails, one in front of the pines, and one behind. The white area at the top right is the lake.
This is my neighbour’s hayfield, next to the woods. The grove of trees and bushes surrounds a water run-off which turns into a deep gully where it enters the woods. There’s a trail along the woods which turns left and goes along side of the gully.
If you enjoyed these photos, you might also want to look at Summer Aerial Photos and A Collection of Aerial Photos.
There are also some very interesting aerial photos taken from a full-scale airplane in my Aviation Photo Gallery.
