One of the things you have to do to obtain planning approval for any kind of building work here is to show eg by ‘photomontage’, what the building project will look like in finished form in its actual environment. I thought that it might be interesting to show ‘the big picture’ by using backgrounds lifted from shots taken by one of my drones and shown below is what I’ve come up with.
First off, taken from a low height – only 7 or 8 metres – from the road at the western end of the terrain.
Now a shot taken from a south-westerly direction.
This is a shot of the back of the house taken from the east.
The next shot was taken from the south.
Now a shot taken from the south-east.
And finally a shot taken from the north-east.
It’s almost impossible to get the scale dead right but I think they’re really interesting and I’m very pleased with the results. I think they give a great idea of how the house will look and are much better than just using images from ground level. When we eventually get to meet I’ll see whether the construction company would like to use any of them. It’ll save them having to produce anything of their own and as I’m now getting rather anxious to move on, anything that can save time will be welcome in my book!
