Aerial Photography of the Homestead

We had aerial photographs taken yesterday as part of our new real estate listing service. The video photographer was here at Grey Havens doing his thing too. So we had a lot of excitement going on at once.

The bird’s-eye views were done by a company called Amazing Aerial Photography. The balloon setup was quite ingenious. A digital camera is mounted on a bracket below a blimp-style balloon. While guiding the balloon at an altitude of a couple hundred feet, the photographer was able to preview and take the images while he remained safely on the ground. Way, way cool!

The aerial pictures turned out terrific, and our realtor gals have added several to the photo libraries posted on various real estate web sites.

  5. Thank you, Cindy! We shake our heads and try to remember back to when the land was just bare pasture. We've planted about hundreds of trees and bushes over the years and their glory is the evidence of our hard work!

  6. Thanks, Donna! We hope that the pictures will help us sell the homestead!


Marty, here! Donna loves comments, and I faithfully pass them on to her. Thank you so much for visiting!
