Spectacular drone footage of WA harvest

Grain Central, February 12, 2018

YOUNG photography enthusiast, Josh Carr, has created a spectacular video that captures the essence of the 2017-18 winter crop harvest in Western Australia.

WA’s 2017-18 harvest ended up delivering stronger-than-forecast receivals as spring rains turned around the privations of a dry winter, with the state producing 13.23 million tonnes (Mt). The previous season was a record 16.6Mt.

Mr Carr’s video showcases harvest near Goomalling in the WA wheatbelt region 45 kilometres north-north-east of Northam. It was filmed over the course of a day during the 2017/2018 harvest.

The 25-year-old grew up in Merredin, WA, where he had some mates in the farming community and developed a passion for drone photography and videography.

“I thought drones were pretty cool. It just progressed from a fun-time hobby and turned into more of a full-time occupation whenever I have some free time,” he said.

Equipment: The main footage was shot with a DJI Mavic Pro. Other footage with Sony Alpha 6300. Music: AurusAudio – Epic [Music Standard Licence]. Edited with Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017.

 (Note: Permission was provided by the Shire of Goomalling to film in Goomalling townsite and the appropriate precautions and regulations were followed.)
