Devil’s Courthouse Overlook
March 6th, 2019, I was driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway and stopped at mile marker 422 to stretch my legs and check out the scenery. While I was stopped, I decided to fly my DJI drone and capture some aerial images around Devil’s Courthouse overlook. Below you can view two of the 360-degree panoramic images that I captured that day. The rock formation that you can see in the photos is Devil’s Courthouse. The trail to get to the top of the “courthouse” is only a 0.8 miles hike.
Equipment and software used to create the above 360-degree panoramic images:
- DJI Phantom 4 Advanced Drone
- Adobe Lightroom
- Adobe Photoshop
- Garden Gnome Pano2VR
