VIDEO: Summer splendor

Jon Rawlinson is a professional filmmaker specializing in documentary and commercial production.

The Thousand Islands are a sprawling archipelago of 1,864 islands that straddle the Canada-U.S. border in the St. Lawrence River as it emerges from the northeast corner of Lake Ontario.

Put the artist and the islands together and you get some beautiful imagery from the sky, including a Hinckley T29R playing on the water.

Rawlinson says he used a DJI Inspire 1 drone to capture the footage.

The Thousand Islands are a watery playground for boaters, dotted with lighthouses, historic castles, maritime museums, world-class fishing and diving, quaint downtown shopping, on-the-water dining and family amusements.
