I agree. Most drone shots that I see immediately jump out and scream "drone shot". I think that they would be much more effective if they looked like they were taken from a non-existent adjacent hillside, and not from the overlook at Gore Canyon.

Sorry for the bad luck with the trip - I didn't make it out to see the J this year either.
