The point of a blog is to write information, painting a visual picture with words, layering the landscape with detail and colour so it is alive in our imaginations. Yet today is different. The only words I’ll use are the few here, and the stunning pictures revealed today are courtesy of a birds eye view of St Helena Island taken by a drone.
This video is something special… showcasing the places mentioned in recent posts, including St Helena’s Lime Kiln mentioned in the story ‘An Abundance of Oysters and a load of Lime,’ the cemeteries, the remnant forest from ‘The last of the Tulipwood’ and Warder’s Row, home of St Helena’s warder community.
This week’s post is video footage taken by a drone expertly driven by Niels Juel, husband of current, talented St Helena Ranger, Mette. I’ll introduce Mette as a passionate and energetic part of today’s St Helena Community another day. For now enjoy the golden images caught late in the afternoon on a quiet island, expertly captured by Neils.
