I was back in Rio Arriba County New Mexico shooting two rural land properties for Hemingway Land which brought me to the Navajo Dam area with Navajo Lake on one side of it and the San Juan River on the other. Naturally I had my DJI Mavic Pro drone with me, but only had a little time to shoot some flyover video of the dam.
The San Juan River stands out like a ribbon of emerald water contrasting with the dry desert surroundings. If I had more time I would have done a flight right over it.
I first drove over the dam at night leaving the first property shoot. As you can see in the photo above there are no lights on the dam and even more disconcerting no guardrails! Driving on that narrow 2-lane road with complete darkness on either side of you was a little scary, but I found driving over it the next morning in broad day light when I could actually see the drop offs was even scarier!
