A few days ago I made my way over the Severn Bridge to Wales on a quest to see some Autumn colour along the banks of the River Wye…..
The valley of the River Wye is well known in this part of the UK for its beautiful Fall Color or Autumn Colour as we prefer to spell it over here !! The banks of the river are heavily forested and this wooded area extends beyond just the River Wye valley.
I visited the area a few days ago with the drone and got some quite nice footage. I am concerned that some of my GoPro low light footage may not be as good as it could be particularly on a large TV screen – I am still playing with the settings on the GoPro to get the best result.
The drone footage was taken on my DJI Phantom 4 Pro.
In the event, I was probably a week or two early for “peak colour” but you have to take the opportunity while we can; bearing in mind the storms that can hit the western UK at this time of year that can batter the trees and leave them naked overnight!
Interestingly I had to cross the bridge over the River Severn to get to this part of Wales. Many people think the River Severn is the border between England and Wales but, in fact, it is the River Wye that marks the border. The Severn Bridge crosses the River Severn AND the River Wye – there is a narrow promontory of land – a finger – between the two rivers. The other interesting fact of these two rivers is the massive tidal range – up to 54 feet at Chepstow at certain times of the year.
