Fog Over Baltimore

Eyes in the Sky

The Inner Harbor of Baltimore, Maryland was once one of the busiest shipping ports in the United States.  As shipping technology progressed, the port's shallow waters could not accommodate the larger ships, and the port was relocated to deeper waters further east.  Eventually the Inner Harbor area was redeveloped into an entertainment/mixed use district.  Airuz contributor and pilot Eyes in the Sky used DJI Phantom 4 drone to create this aerial view of the Inner Harbour area, with downtown Baltimore in the background.

Baltimore, Maryland in the Mid-Atlantic USA has deep roots as a port city.  While the city's Inner Harbor area has been converted to other uses (in part because it was not deep enough to handle the deep drafts of large containerships), the port still remains one of the top 20 in the country, and it is the largest dry bulk port on the East Coast.  In this drone video, top contributor Jeff Walrich gives us an epic aerial view of the harbor landmark known as the Sugar Shack, the country's largest terminal for receiving sugar.

Check out this drone video of Baltimore's Inner Harbor area, filmed with a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone.  Situated at the mouth of the Patapasco River, the harbor was once one of the busiest in the USA.  As ships became larger, the shallow waters of the Inner Harbor couldn't handle the deeper drafts, and the harbor was shifted in stages further east, towards the mouth of the river.  The Inner Harbor was redeveloped over several decades, and now it's a thriving historic, entertainment, and residential district.
