Real photographers who create fine images take the time to explore all the compositional opportunities and place the camera in just the right spot to achieve their vision. I have no problem flying for over twenty minutes around the area of interest to find my image, and then land precisely where I took off from. Of course, If you just want a quick snapshot of whatever the camera sees from right above your head then your method is fine, but they will not be great photos. BTW, your reply had nothing at all to do with my image, so why didn't you start a new topic and introduce your technique?Great photos are often available to take in a metro area by simply and safely just going up briefly from one spot and taking photos in a 360 degree turn. When done, just simply land. No risk of coming down in some horrible place other than right where you are.
