For the last week I have been escorting Martin Kammerer of Konishi Europe, and several of his customers, around the mountains, visiting breeders so Martin could make content for his Modern Koi Blog YouTube Channel.  A very interesting week for sure, but rather tiring, so yesterday was a designated ‘chill out’ day before the weekend’s International Junior Koi Show – http://nishikigoi.life/2016/04/14/1371-koi-entered-2016-4th-international-junior-koi-show/.

It was a wonderful day for sure, bright with almost no wind, perfect for flying my drone, to which I’m becoming rather addicted, unfortunately the flight time of 20 minutes or so makes it rather restricting, it then takes 1 hour to recharge.

Anyway, I took a whole load of pictures, including these three super size aerial panoramas.

The files above link to 2000 pixel wide versions.  Looking forward to the mountains becoming greener, I think they will look wonderful retaken later in the season in better light with blue skies.

For now, I’m off flying again, or rather more searching for new ‘spots’.
