The weather has been nice enough the last few days to get out and take some aerial photos using my trusty Multiplex EasyStar model airplane. The photos were taken at noon on Feb 14th, 2012 around the old ruins at Polly Cove, West Dover, Nova Scotia. To take the photos I used CHDK + the UBASIC Countdown Intervalometer script on my Canon Powershot SD780IS camera with the shutter speed set to 1/1500th second.

There is a small gravel pull off on the side of the Highway 333 at the head of the Polly Cove trail.
