A picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes a still shot just doesn’t do justice when you see something. That’s why we’ve added video to our website now! We’ll be uploading different videos from time to time like the one we put up today. It will look like the sample shown above. To see the video just scroll down below the map box on the left hand side of our webpage page and click on play, that’s all there is to it!
And if you get video you that neat, maybe it a cool storm, some kind of breaking news like a fire, etc you can e-mail us the vido clip to video-at-nelsonscountylife.com and we might post it up there.
Today’s featured video comes from a helicopter flight I recently took with Al Stacey of Gaia Homes in Nellysford. I used to shoot video lots from choppers back in my news days. Al owns a chopper that he leases back at the airport in Charlottesville. On occasion we shoot video and stills out here in Nelson. On this particular day last week we were up shooting pictures over the James River of the batteau boats headed toward Richmond. On the way upstream we caught this black bear crossing the James River headed to the other side. There will be lots more video show over the coming days of our trip down the James.
Al is a very experienced shopper pilot with over 10,000 hours logged in a chopper! That’s more than lots of airline pilots have!
