Aerial Tour of Tampa


Dusk in Tampa


Tampa is the largest city on the west coast of Florida.  It sits on Tampa Bay, which opens up into the Gulf of Mexico.  The metropolitan area, the second largest in Florida after Miami, is often called Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater in reference to the two smaller cities which lie on the other side of the bay.  The area is home to over three million Floridians.  Top contributor Tampa Randy flew a drone over the lovely Southeastern city at dusk to create this amazing aerial video.

Just as drones are increasingly being used to film weddings, they are being used to film wedding proposals.  In this drone video by TampaRandy, you'll get to see a production involving a proposal on a boat cruising Florida's Tampa Bay.  The proposal took place in the shadow of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, which spans the lower part of the bay between St. Petersburg and Terra Ceia.  The bridge opened in 1987, replacing an earlier span which was the scene of two maritime disasters in 1980.
