Mt. Golica isn’t especially high or difficult to climb, but during springtime it’s a very popular destination. People are hiking around here in order to see the blooming narcissi. This year the white flowers came out a little late due to a heavy snowfall in May. But when the slopes turned green and then back to flowery white, it truly was a magnificent sight to behold. I first went there with my friend Tina and returned a week later to do some astrophotography after a long time. Turns out I need to buy a wider lens, my Sony 28/2 is a bit narrow for the Milky Way. Hopefully Tamron will soon release the new 17-28! Anyway, a very short spring is quickly turning into summer and the “dry” mountaineering season can finally begin.
This was also my first chance of getting my new DJI Mavic 2 Pro above a mountain ridge. Not everything went perfect, though. I had some issues with the autofocus, but the footage is still quite good. I’m mostly impressed with the dynamic range of the 1-inch sensor. I’ll have to do further tests for focusing and resolution (the HQ mode should be a bit shaper than the Full FOV used in this video), so I can get the most out of this little beast.
