I hope to never take for granted the beauty around me and the natural settings, beaches, coves, lagoons, forests and shorelines that make Vashon Island special, but should I falter a time or two, all I have to do is take a look at this wonderful video, shot by fellow islander Mike Verharen on a wonderfully (and unusually) clear December day.
In his words: “Not quite a drone, but check out Vashon and Maury Island’s Parks, Beaches and Nature lands with a new perspective from an aerial filming rig. Filmed December 2013. Part One. DJI Phantom and GoPro Hero 3 Black. Song: Open Seas; A New Normal. Licensed by themusicbed.com.”
