Draperstown from the Air

This picture was taken from on-board my Fixed-Wing UAV. It’s taken from above Cahore Heights off the Cahore Rd and the majority of the town can be seen with the two factories Yardmaster and Sperrin Metal in the foreground and the mountains in the background looking up towards Eagles Rock.

It’s actually a series of 10 portrait images stitched together. I flew the aircraft manually so as to match the windspeed which was blowing directly at the aircraft. This enabled me to essentially hover in one spot and using the rudder, gently yaw from side to side while the camera captured images.


Draperstown is situated in the Sperrin Valley in the parish of Ballinascreen, Co. Derry.
