Aerial of a mermaid on sandbar in Virginia Beach, VA

Flying in the face of rain this morning, but rewarding and got the gear packed up just as monsoon hit. This mermaid is a real pro; so easy to work with. We were totally at the mercy of the tides to make the scene. This frame at 85' AGL, but lots of others at varied lesser altitudes.

Model: Hales Parcells
Tail: Kariel JoAllen; Hawaii
Location: Brock Environmental Center/Chesapeake Bay Foundation waterfront near Lynnhaven Inlet, Virginia Beach, VA
Aircraft: DJI Inspire 1 Pro Version 2 with X5RAW Gimbal/Camera; Olympus 12mm f2.0
