High above the boats below…

It’s been a while since I featured anything here from top drone whizz and ex-Brownhills lad Steve Martin, and today it’s a pleasure to feature another remarkable gallery of his aerial photography, inspired by the recent Heritage Narrow Boat Club gathering at Silver Street.

Travelling over to capture some drone shots of the event, Steve also took the opportunity to check out the town from Clayhanger Common, and was amazed at the landscaping and greenery he found, as when he was growing up here, the Common was still a refuse tip!

Steve uses a professional-level DJI drone, and is very skilled in using it to obtain stunning images and video – his previous galleries all went down reallyy well. A few months ago, I featured film and images Steve kindly shared from a daytime flight where he recreated a wonderful 1960s image of Brownhills as it is today, and later, his stunning night flight over Brownhills.

You can regularly see other examples of Steve’s work on his usual haunt, the popular and fascinating Old photos from Hednesford, Chadsmoor and Cannock group on Facebook,

Steve grew up in Brownhills where his family had the chip shop that used to be on the Lichfield Road, Brownhills for a while, and Steve has great memories of the Lichfield Road area, of which I’m still looking for old images if you know to any, please do get in touch.

Thanks to Steve for yet another beautiful gallery, and Steve is happy to talk about his work if you’re interested. You can hook up with him on Facebook here.
