Drone-cam man produces stunning video of Cork coastline
A Cork man has produced a stunning video of a birds-eye view of part of the Wild Atlantic Way using his drone camera.
Raymond Fogarty has got fantastic shots that show the beauty and magnificence of the Irish coastline from the sky that would normally only be available from a helicopter or plane.
The video has been posted online and lists the landmarks featured as Galley Head, Inchydoney, Inishbeg, Sherkin Island, Cape Clear, Barley Cove, Mizen Head, Bere Island, Allihies and around the Beara Peninsula.
Fogarty has developed a bit of an online following since investing in the drone camera earlier this year. He has previously posted a tour of Cork city from the sky and received praise for his creativity.
The 31-year-old revealed he decided to invest in the drone camera rather than his original choice of a telescope. He paid for the €1700 drone with money he saved since quitting smoking a year ago.
Fogarty spoke to the Irish Tines in April, when his first video was first posted online. He told them: “The flying thing is a new hobby for me. It took a bit of getting used to at first, but after a while it became second nature. My primary motivation is to get good shots and I wanted to show people how beautiful the country really is from another view.”
