Video: A 'Drone's-Eye' View Of Snowy Boston

This article is more than 5 years old.

A video posted on YouTube Thursday is providing a "drone's-eye" view of Boston's snowy streets and landscapes after a historic winter that's dumped more than 100 inches of snow on the city.

Set to music, the video shows a variety of scenes around the city, including Fenway Park, the Boston Common, the Esplanade, the Charles River as well as some narrow streets — all blanketed by snow.

The video was created by Boston Virtual Imaging LLC using one drone, which flew over the snowy scenes over the course of two days — Friday and Tuesday. The drone captured about two hours of footage, which was edited down to the three-minute video.

"The snowfall is just something that everybody's been talking about constantly all day every day and with the record snowfall that we've had, we just thought it would be a fun project," said Matt Murphy, the owner and president of the aerial video and photography company.

The video ends with a reminder, "The first day of spring is March 20th." So, hang in there Boston.
