Most Sunday mornings Paul and I drive to Castelnaud for a picnic breakfast of naughty but nice pastries enjoyed by the river Dordogne but this Sunday was special we had a drone for company.
We picked our picnic spot with a gorgeous view of the early morning mist over the water.
We had just sat down to eat when a man on the next picnic table to Paul and I began assembling a drone.
Here it is all ready to take off.
For those of you who are interested, it looked like a DJ1 Phantom 4 advanced Quadcopter which has a 20 megapixel camera capturing high definition 4K video at 60fps. The drone has a maximum control range of 7km.
Gaining altitude and speed rapidly, it flow over the Dordogne River, pausing to hover now and again in order to take aerial pictures.
After the wow factor of the drone, we returned to the picnic and relaxing by waters of the tranquil river.
