Drones offer amazing views of Maine



Sitting at a table on the ocean-side deck of Frank’s Dockside Restaurant in Lubec, we noticed a guy in the parking lot, fiddling with something that turned out to be a drone. Up it shot, into the sky, and proceeded out over the ocean. Intrigued, we started talking about it, when the lady at the next table told us the guy was her husband, Ryan Malagara.

Turns out that the two of them own a Machias company that helps people sell things on Ebay, and uses the drone to video homes that are for rent or for sale. I asked them to send me more information, and some of the photos Ryan had taken high above Lubec.

I’m sharing one of Ryan’s amazing Lubec photos with you today. Stunning!

You can see more of Ryan’s photos, and learn more about his business here.  He also has a Facebook page that you should check out.
