For a unique perspective of our hamlet, here is a 360 degree aerial panorama we took from our UAV or ‘drone’ on May 20, 2015. Click on the far right icon at the bottom of the image for a full screen view.
Note: Updated with a new higher altitude image taken May 22.
The Hardisty Tank Farm photographed from a UAV or drone. We were 5 nautical miles from the Hardisty airport so our flight required a NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) to be issued to alert pilots we were working in the area.

This is a photo taken last summer over the Imperial Oil Kearl project in the oil sands. It is only a small part of the entire area but the amount of construction involved is mind boggling. This photo, along with others can be found on our WorkAbove Stock Photo website.
Smoke from forest fires in northeastern Alberta made their way down to Edmonton last week and I just happened to be photographing in the area. This is a shot of the downtown area from above the city airport.
