Finally getting back into the swing of the video stuff - you can tell I'm stuck at home for winter can't you.

Just love the Hamersley region. Some snippets while exploring on the quads which is the only way to access the area these days. Drone pilots for this one are myself and Jacko.

I think it's a good time (winter) for you to be stuck at home just so that you will become 'bored' & put together more great video for the likes of me to salivate over. Seriously though we are very lucky to have such a wonderfully diverse country to explore, the Hamersley whilst spectacular is but a small part of our geographical landscape.
On a different note it is incredible the extra life that is brought into video, especially your type of travel, by the advent of drones.
Trust you are keeping well & have divested yourself of that nasty habit of crash tackling women in the snow.

G'day Mick O

Nice video, it's a genuinely nice way to show folks a slice of the Pilbara, there are those who have never seen or possibly even heard of the Hamersley's .

Right now, here in the land of Iron it's about 6 degrees C but it is supposedly heading upwards of 25 degrees C sometime later today, rain on the horizon ~ apparently!

Safe travels : Joe

Putting a bit of a video together at the moment that you'll like Joe. Here's a teaser for you.



Trust all is well with you and yours

Regards

Fantastic video Mick O,
Thanks for sharing.
Like you I'm not travelling anywhere this winter I've had shoulder surgery which has limited me.
1 good thing is I have plenty of time to watch YouTube and am really impressed with the different perspective a drone can impart to a video.
Do you put any of your videos on YouTube.
Keep up the good work, I'm looking forward to seeing some more of your bored offerings.

Thanks William. Yes I have quite a few up on Youtube. I prefer to embed Vimeo as the quality is much better (higher resolution available).

Here's my You Tube Channel.

Thanks for your latest Vid Mick, excellent scenery and the quality is getting better with every video you create. The quads and your arctic cats have well and truly opened up a whole new avenue of exploring for you. Where about's in the Hamersley Range was that goat track you were travelling?

Also thanks for the link to your channel, I can now convert them to MP4 so I can watch off-line.

Cheers
