Keri Island Lighthouse, Estonia


Contributor Harispomonis created this beautiful drone video of a well known lighthouse on the Gulf of Finland in the Baltic Sea.  Keri Island is the northernmost of the islands of Estonia which lie off its coast north of the capital city Tallinn.  The island's lighthouse was constructed in 1719 on the orders of the Russian Tsar Peter the Great, who wanted a navigation aid for shipping in and out of the new Russian capital of St. Petersburg at the eastern end of the Gulf.

Autumn day in Soomaa National Park, Estonia


In this drone video by Blizzardfoto, you'll get a beautiful look at the wetlands for which Estonia is so well known.  Soomaa National Park is located in the southwestern quadrant of the Baltic country, a bit east of the Gulf of Riga and north of the border with Lithuania.  The park was created in 1993 (shortly after Estonia became independent of Russia) as a means to protect the country's once-extensive wetland areas which had shrunk dramatically over the course of the 20th century.

Beautiful winter day


Like its fellow countries around the Baltic Sea, Estonia is still heavily wooded.  Its extensive pine forests become seas of white and dark green in the winter months, interspersed with  frozen lakes and streams.  In this drone video by Blizzardfoto, you'll get a beautiful bird's eye view of this winter wonderland, compliments of contributor Blizzardfoto.  The video was shot in Viljandi County, which is situated in the southern part of the country along its border with Latvia.

The Lonely Goatherd


The Baltic Sea republic of Estonia is known in part for its legendary winter scenery, in which its expansive forests and marshes become blanketed in white.  It's a scene which could be mistaken for Finland, which has a similar landscape in many places.  In this video by Blizzardfoto, you'll get an aerial look at an iconic Estonia winter scene.  The video captures this winter wonderland with an extra touch - a mini herd of deer wandering through the snowdrifts.

Puhtu-Laelatu Nature Reserve


Blizzardfoto created this beautiful drone video of a nature preserve on the Baltic Sea.  Puhtu-Laelatu Nature Reserve is in western Estonia in Lääne County, the westernmost of the country's 15 counties.  The reserve is located on the Suur Strait, a body of water which connects the Gulf of Riga and the open Baltic Sea.  The preserve is home to many rare and semi-rare species of flora, such as the Traunstein's dactylorhiza, or narrow-leaved marsh orchid.

Train Dump [Tallinn-Väike, Tallinn, Estonia]


If you've ever wondered what happens to (some) old trains, check out this FPV video from FPV pilot and contributor Slavachrome.  He took on a "train dump" near the Estonian capital of Tallinn.  What is a "train dump" exactly?  As you'll see from the video, it's several tracks worth of seemingly abandoned rolling stock - locomotives, freight cars, passenger cars, hundred of them in all.  We don't know how they got there or if this is their "final" resting place but it makes for some great FPV content!
