Santa Cruz & Davenport Coast Aerial Scenery - Video


Aerial scenery from the coast of Santa Cruz, CA and Davenport, CA. The video footage was shot with a DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter on April 15th, 2017. I fly along the coastline showing you scenery from Bonny Doon Beach, Shark Fin Cove, Davenport Beach, and California State Route 1.

Shark Fin Cove is also known as Shark Fin Beach, Shark Tooth Beach, Shark Tooth Cove, or Davenport Cove. The cove gets its name from its rock that looks like a shark fin or shark tooth.

The audio track for the video was recorded after the flight using a Tascam DR-05 Audio Recorder.

A photo of the flood levels along North Arroyo Trail. It has been a while since the mega storms so the flooding has subsided a bit. You can see where the water level used to be from the change colors on the plants. I thought the sudden change in color was sort of interesting, so I took a photo.

Redwood Regional Park - Oakland, CA (Cellphone Photos)

I took a walk on Stream Trail in Redwood Regional Park in Oakland, CA last Friday on April 14th, 2017. I shot quite a lot of cellphone photos while I was there. Normally I'd post my cellphone photos the same day I shoot them, but I was very tired that day, and I was busy the whole weekend, so this is why I only got to it today. The travel vlog for April will come out next month.

As a lot of you know, the San Francisco Bay Area was hit with several mega storms few months back. In the photos you will see the aftermath of the storm. Not all is bad though because wild flowers are blooming like crazy!
