Cutting across the rail bridge and floating above the river, sun reflecting in the waters below, the River Tay from the skies is a view that has been worth the wait for Dale Summerton.
Waiting six months to be able to capture the two bridges that connect Dundee with Fife, the 32-year-old has been delighted with the response to his video of the Silvery Tay.
Now the Dundonian has finally been given the boost he needs to reach even higher heights to secure stunning panoramas and video from his drone.
He explained: "On my Facebook page, whenever I post a new video I ask what people want me to film next and the riverside was one of the most requested areas.
"But because it is in the direct path of the airport, I needed to wait until I was qualified before I could approach them and ask which time would be quiet enough for me to shoot some footage.
"It took about six months of practical tests to be able to fly commercially. Ever since I started Rising View I have been pushing towards this."
Finally armed with the qualifications he needed, he took his drone down to the riverside on Sunday morning to finally fly across the Silvery Tay.
Swooping up from the edge of the river, the drone smoothly takes in the view of the Tay Rail Bridge as a single train trundles along the tracks with the sun breaking through the clouds over Newport.
Delighted with the results, even Dale was surprised by the reaction from fans of his work as he posted a sneak peek on his Facebook page.
He explained: “I put up a short clip from the footage just after I did it, not the full thing and people loved it. It was viewed something like 10,000 times.
"I’ve had loads of expats getting in touch to say they had a tear in their eye watching it."
Now Dale wants his sideline project to fly to even greater heights and create Dundee’s very own street view website, offering everyone from residents to expats the chance to see Camperdown to Tannadice from the skies using interactive technology and 360 degree shots.
He said: "I want to launch Above Dundee which will be like Google Street View and take footage from around 50 to 60 sites that I’ve looked at. It’s a big project and will be very interactive."
Take a look at Dale’s footage from Dundee’s riverside as a sneak peek at what the drone operator has planned for his next epic aerial adventure.
