Phantom Menace

By cuffit
I was taking photos of cycling hill climb sprint and one of the riders, not riding, brought a drone along to follow each rider's effort. The event started early in the evening and as we all packed up, I happened to be near the landing point of the drone and took this shot while it was landing. The light was quite low by this time which helped the background no end, and my settings were just slow enough to capture the blur of the rotors; a tad slower might have been better but there wasn't any time to make adjustments. Something different anyway.

Very interesting Chris. Brilliant and useful things used correctly. It's the few 'fools' that give these a bad name. Pam

Thank you Joe and Pam for your kind comments and to everyone who took the time to vote as well. This drone wasn't a menace in this case, Pam, as you say, but when I saw the model name 'Phantom' the title pooped into my head. Chris
