Contributor Cshel put the DJI Mavic Pro 2 to work creating this awesome hyperlapse from greater Boston.  The first few shots are from Gloucester, an outer suburb of the city on Cape Ann.  Then the action shifts to Boston proper, beginning with a beautiful shot looking over the Charles River towards Fenway Park.  Then it's on to the skyscrapers around Copley Plaza before finishing up near the Financial District, wrapping up with a nice sunset sequence in Back Bay.
