John Videler’s drone shots have earned raves from “06880” readers. They are breathtakingly beautiful. And they force us to look at very familiar scenes in new, unique ways.
This shot of Compo Beach, Soundview Drive, Schlaet’s Point and environs may be his best yet. If you thought you knew the shore: Think again.
All of John’s drone shots (and more) are available for purchase. Click here for a 21st-century slice of timeless Westport.

Westport is chock full of kayaks.
They’re stacked at Compo Beach, Longshore Sailing School, Downunder, and docks and driveways all around town.
But the kayaks in last week’s Photo Challenge were some of the most visible. They’re stored at Schlaet’s Point — specifically, in the little private park (supposedly) for Bluewater Hill residents only, next to the house at 259 Hillspoint Road with the massive stone wall and 3-flag pole.
We all pass by them often. But only Matt Murray, Rich Stein, Joelle Harris Malec and Sarah Hock knew exactly where they were. Kayak kudos to you! (Click here to see Amy Schneider’s shot.)
