Photographing Kongsten Fortress in Fredrikstad, Norway on a misty day has been on my bucket list for a long time. On the 25th of February 2021, on a gloomy day with ideal circumstances for drone photography, I finally had the opportunity to shoot the fortress. I was flying with the Dji Mavic Air Mini as my main drone at the time. Since then, the Østfoldmuseum has replaced the previous drone with a Dji Air 2s.

As a consequence of the pandemic and the temporary closure of our museums, we were able to improve our perceptions and content on our online platforms, such as KulturPunkt, a cultural heritage web portal (Developed by KulturIT), which provides text, multimedia, and 360-degree virtual reality. The drone footage will be submitted to the Culture Spot platform.
