This wasn't a planned video. On Day 2 of my drive to move to Nashville I happened to pick a road with this old, abandoned motel on it. As soon as I saw it, I knew what I had to do. I immediately pulled a U-turn and went back to capture this scene.
It was almost as if this was a movie set. It was perfectly weather warn and crumbling. I'm lucky it was the middle of the day and perfectly sunny out or I would have been terrified. Talk about the perfect haunted house.
Even with the sun high in the sky, it had a very erie feeling to it. I'm sure there are countless stories of travelers who have stayed there over the years trapped in the crumbling walls.
I found this abandoned factory a few blocks from my apartment and couldn't wait to explore it with my drone. This old building along the Cumberland river is both mysterious and beautiful. I had a great time exploring it and imagining what it was like in it's prime.
On January 22nd, 2016 Nashville, TN got 8 inches of snow. This is the most snow in the area since 1988. Which lead to the perfect opportunity to take my Phantom 3 Pro and explore my new home town that was covered in a beautiful blanket of white snow.
The sun had just cleared the horizon as I finished photographing the sunrise. My goal was to explore the beach, the jetty and lifeguard tower with my drone. As I took off over the lifeguard tower I immediately noticed something in the water.
The water was so still and clear it was impossible not to notice the massive schools of mullet and the tarpon herding them. My plans immediately changed. My only goal was to capture the groups of mullet as they expanded and contracted like wax in a lava lamp.
