Discovery Bay, CA (Aerial Photography) - 5/27/2016

Discovery Bay, CA consists of a town built on top of a huge artificial lake surrounded by a lot of farmland. I usually describe Discovery Bay as a town and artificial lake out in the middle of nowhere. If you take a look at the town on Google Maps, you will understand why I describe the town like this. With that in mind, I thought it would be a really cool place to fly over with my DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter after looking around the area on Google Maps. I can see from satellite imagery, the roads and houses in the artificial lake made really interesting shapes and patterns. I wanted to take photos myself of these wonderful designs and this is why I performed this flight. It was very interesting seeing the designs with my own camera and aircraft. I also shot video on this flight, you can view the video here. In this blog post, I will share with you the photos I took on this flight.
