I recently ventured out to take advantage of a rare break in the winter storms to do some sunset flying near Mt. St. Helens, and I managed to capture some awesome footage!
I continue to be impressed by how the Mavic 2 can handle cold temperatures with noticeable loss of battery life. I was a little worried about flying through the clouds and mist, but I'm learning that the Mavic handles such conditions very well.

In addition to the video, I've posted a bunch of photos on my blog: https://illuminationsfromtheattic.blogspot.com/2018/12/winter-wonderland-in-cascade-mountains.html

Very nice video footage. Still waiting for some SNOW here in Massachusetts so I can get some dramatic aerial footage as well.  Right now, without snow, everything looks kinda BLAH from above!

Nice footage.  What elevation were you flying at?  looks pretty high

Thanks, the mountain I was flying around was a little more than 4000 ft tall, so I would estimate that I maxed out around 4500 ft (above sea level).

Thanks, yours is the same problem I have living down in the lowlands of Washington - way too much grey and brown!

Very cinematic and nice editing.  Remember you cloud clearances though.

Thanks - there wasn't any danger in flying in/near clouds at this location, as there is rarely any sort of air traffic, especially in the winter.  I'm very familiar with the terrain, and with typical air traffic (mainly a sightseeing helicopter that operates a predictable route in the summer).
