Headwaters Of The Missouri River
Montana Summer 2016
Aerial Photography Using Drones
This complex, small park is in Three Forks, Montana, East of Butte. I photographed several explanatory signs and include them in a small separate gallery.
At this location, four rivers merge and continue eastward as the Missouri River. The Jefferson, Madison, Gallatin and Missouri wind around small islands and join, one by one into the single larger river.
Aside from the power lines, this is a very friendly area for drone flying, and the view from above adds immeasurably to our understanding of the complex.
I was delighted when my flight over some drifting fishermen had the drone aloft when a long train appeared. I quickly switched the drone’s camera onto the train.
