Watch This Beautiful Drone Footage of the Golden Gate Bridge

While visiting San Francisco to photograph a wedding, Dane Christensen felt inspired by the city's various landmarks, and a picturesque day, to also capture drone footage of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Christensen's drone setup, which set him back about $3,800 (including the iPad he uses as a viewfinder), was almost lost due to high winds around the bridge. But luckily for Christensen, and fans of super hi-def YouTube videos, the drone made it back down safely into an argument about a dystopian future where armies of drones choke out the sun.



"I think it's the future," Christensen said of drones delivering packages to customer's doorsteps. "Drones are friendly not deadly! As an Amazon customer, I'd love to get packages in 30 minutes or less instead of 2 days. "

The Golden Gate Bridge celebrates its 78th anniversary next month.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
