This Drone Photographer Took Flight Over An Abandoned Quarry In Texas And Found A Submerged Surprise

Aerial photographer Michael Hess sent his drone skyward over an abandoned flooded quarry in Texas and found a surprise submerged beneath the surface. Although the waters look calm and blue, three large pieces of construction equipment drowned and nearly forgotten.

Was the quarry flooded quickly and these vehicles couldn’t be saved? Were they simply too much of a hassle to remove? We may never know, but we can imagine how exciting it would be to go out for a test flight and discover hidden treasure!
