UAV drone survey of a quarry

Korec Photo Competition

The new year is already off to a good start as our entry to the Korec Group’s photography competition in the nature category has been selected as category and overall winner!

Many of you have already seen this image featured on our website as part of our year in review. Our winning shot was taken by our Senior Surveyor, Peter Nelson, while out doing a drone survey of Shap Quarry in Cumbria. This was part of a combined surveying project using both aerial and traditional techniques to produce a quarry model for the client.

Peter took this snapshot on his phone while the drone with a Trimble UX5 launched to start the survey. We are both surprised and pleased at how well received the photo has been.

Eric Hinds said “Peter’s excellent photograph was just one of a number of great images that our survey teams have taken throughout the year. In fact they were so good that we produced a desktop calendar of the best images to give to our clients. Looking forward to some more great photographs this year!”
