I finally got around to setting up a programmed flight path for the drone, so I can record the same thing at different times. I was initially thinking of different times of the year, but ended up taking one in the evening around twilight with some smoke haze from distant bushfires, and then one the next morning when it was quite clear. The difference in what can be seen is actually quite amazing!

This is the evening flight. Because there is no direct sun, the colours are more muted, but without the stark contrasts of the shaded areas you can actually see a lot more detail.

And this is the following morning, which was clear skies and bright sun. The trees are much more vivid, but the areas of shadow create a massive contrast.
