Drones. Not only a wonderful tool for aerial footage or photography. A drone is a great tool for scouting.
Scouting is one of the most important skill that a landscape, travel or journalist photographer must master.
As you must know everything and be prepared about your camera BEFORE taking a picture, the same apply for location and subject.
Above is a footage that helped me to find the best spot for the pictures from the ground In that location there was only one little spot where you can get the perspective I was looking for. With the drone I found it and I also found the access to it.
Preparation is the key to success.
