Fremont Central Park (Aerial Photography) - Fremont, CA

A friend of mine came back to the San Francisco Bay Area for summer break and wanted to see me fly my DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter. I have thought about doing an aerial photo shoot over Fremont Central Park and Lake Elizabeth in Fremont, CA for a while now, so I decided to demo my UAV for him at Fremont Central Park. Here are the aerial photos I shot on the photo shoot. The photos were shot last Tuesday on 5/17/2016.

I then decided to get an aerial photo of Aqua Adventure Fremont Water Park (right) and Fremont Skate Park (left). I'll be honest, this is the first time I actually got to see inside of the water park. I've never been inside the water park before since the place finished construction back in 2009.

I then began my flight back across the lake. Here is a photo of Lake Elizabeth and Fremont Central Park from my flight back.

Top down photo of one of the playgrounds at Fremont Central Park. I felt the playground looked pretty cool contrasted against the grass patches around it. Before anyone calls me irresponsible flying my UAV over a children's playground, I did make sure there weren't a lot of people on the playground and I did my best to keep my flight time above the playground as short as possible. Please note it was very hot outside that day at 90°F. Also, it was little bit past noon on a Tuesday which is before most children got out of school. If it was a weekend or late afternoon, I would not have done this.

I started a slow descent on the playground to get a closer top down photo of it.

 For the last photo from my photo shoot, I decided to get a low altitude photo of Duck Island in the middle of Lake Elizabeth.
