Lighthouses of New England Massachusetts and Rhode Island

Why Lighthouse of New England

During our recent excursion to New England,  one of my top priorities was to capture some of the amazing Lighthouses of New England. There is still a large collection of lighthouses up and down the coast so it is pretty easy to keep that search pretty high on the priority list.  A second priority was to capture these lighthouses successfully with the drone in both video and still image varieties.  This post is to show you some of the lighthouses that we found and give you details of those lighthouses so that you can capture them on your next adventure.

You can read all about the details of the first part of the trip here: Travel Tips for Boston, Surviving the Freedom Trail.

DJI Mavic Pro Drone

If you are not aware, I am flying the DJI Mavic Pro as my current drone of choice.   I have been very surprised with how easy it as been to fly and how well it captures some very good images and video.  For this particular trip there are so many places that you can not fly the drone because you might be in a national park or you might be close to an airport. Be sure to know all of the local regulations and obey them so that you keep drone flying safe and fun.

Also, for each one of these lighthouses that I videoed, I asked the lighthouse staff if it was ok that I flew the drone around them.  First of all, they were shocked that I would ask. Secondly they were delighted to get me information and access to fly around the lighthouse successfully.  So drone flyers, go ahead and talk to the people that manage the facilities that you want to fly at.  You might be surprised with how accommodating they might be.
