On September 1 Georgia will restrict drone flying – one of the last countries to do so. When I heard the news I grabbed my quadcopter & went on a 2 week road-trip to shoot aerial photos while the skies were still free. All Photos: © Amos Chapple/RFE/RL
High in the mountains of Mtskheta-Mtianeti.
The day before I drove up, one of the locals of Omalo village toppled off the road to his death.
They were so common on this road I thought they were distance markers.
The river ran loud enough to drown out the noise of the 4-kilogram Inspire 2 drone used to shoot these pics.
#6 Morning Mist Drifts Over A Small Church Near Ukhati Along The North-south Georgian Military Highway
The aluminum monument (which looks a lot better from the back than the front) has a sword ready for enemies, but a bowl of wine ready for friends.
These are churchkelis, made by dipping a string of walnuts into a gooey mixture of grape juice. Looks like earwax, tastes like heaven.
Looking like a little slice of Tuscany in the evening sunlight.
