Mesmerizing Aerials Give Snow Globe Effect to Winter Wonderland
Drone captures other-worldly scene.
-- Today's East Coast snow storm is making the weather outside frightful for some, but this drone footage taken with a GoPro shows a winter wonderland.
As the drone smoothly glides above a Leesburg, Virginia, neighborhood, the aerial footage captures the snowfall and the mesmerizing symmetry of a series of snow-covered roofs, roads and lawns.
Two videos of the snowfall were uploaded to YouTube by Chris Turner, a Leesburg resident and software engineer.
The first video, taken around 10:45 a.m., was Turner's first drone flight attempt in snow, according to the description on his YouTube video.
The second video is a follow-up on the weather two hours later. It was taken around 1:45 p.m. when it was still snowing and the accumulation was around 2 inches, he says in the video's description.
