Como é difícil voar um drone hoje…

with one comment

Um dos meus YouTubers favoritos, Peter McKinnon, fez um vídeo que fala na dificuldade que há, hoje em dia, em fazer um voo com um drone.

Compreendo que haja a necessidade de regras, fruto também da falta de bom-senso das pessoas… mas chegar ao ponto de termos de ter quase um curso de piloto de aviação, acaba por ser ridículo.


One of my favourite YouTubers, Peter McKinnon, made a video about how hard is to fly a drone on these days.

I understand that we need rules, in some cases, due to the disrespect of people… but, reach a point that we have to have a license similar to a commercial pilot, it’s ridiculous.

Yukon Striker – POV – Canada’s Wonderland

with 3 comments

Prepare to be exhilarated by Yukon Striker’s epic journey at a height of 223 feet above the wilderness, and a 90-degree drop, 245 feet down into an underwater mining shaft. With speeds reaching 130 km/h, soar through four dynamic inversions, including a complete 360-degree loop – the only one of its kind for a dive coaster. Be prepared for the ride of a lifetime beginning in 2019!


Abriu na passada sexta-feira o Canada’sWonderland, um novo parque temático de Toronto, no Canadá. De entre todas as atrações disponíveis, o grande destaque vai para a Yukon Striker, que a organização descreve como “maior, mais rápida e mais alta divecoaster do mundo”.

De acordo com os designers de montanhas-russas Bolliger & Mabillard, uma “divecoaster” é um estilo de montanha russa que tem “uma queda vertical a direito com os passageiros voltados para o chão”. A queda da Yukon Striker mantém os passageiros suspensos no ar e a olhar para o chão durante 3 segundos antes de os deixar mergulhar a pique – daí o nome “dive” – durante 75 metros até ao nível do solo.

Snow Bird

During a milder February day in Alberta, Canada, Your Shot member P. Vaudry went for a hike along the Bow River in Fish Creek Provincial Park. “While walking through Hull’s Wood, I noticed this northern flicker in a tree. I approached, and the flicker remained still. To me, [it] was thoroughly enjoying the warmth of the sun, so much so that it didn’t seem to notice that I was there.”

Vaudry’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

Sky Light

Viewed from a remote ecolodge, the aurora borealis unfurls over a snowy plain in Canada’s Northwest Territories. “Having always had a love of the stars, I moved to the lodge to see the aurora and to learn to live off the land,” writes Your Shot member Emma Blythman. “Each night, after learning how to hunt and collecting wood, I would camp out by candlelight at the igloo, set up my camera, and watch the aurora dance above my head for hours. Magical.”

A wildfire rages at the Saskatchewan River Crossing in Alberta, Canada. Your Shot member Christine Garner was vacationing in the park when a sharp turn in the road revealed the blaze. “I was so shocked to see a fire of this magnitude,” she writes.

Train Ride, Canada

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos

A young Mennonite girl looks out the window of the Heritage Number 9 Waterloo Central Railway steam train as it reaches its destination at Waterloo station in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. This candid photo was taken in October of 2012, but it feels timeless to me.

(This photo was submitted to My Shot.)

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? I personally love documentary portraits of people, so I’m happy when I find one that will hold its own as a Photo of the Day. The subject, the setting, and the choice of black and white work together perfectly to create a timeless photograph, and the direct gaze of the young girl draws me in. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
