This awesome photo captures the moment when a mountain climber finally succeeded in scaling the summit. It’s absolutely magnificent and, if you suffer from vertigo, horrifying as well. But thank you to the brave climber for capturing the shot so we at home can enjoy the view vicariously.
One of the really cool touches in this photo is that it uses two drones. One drone helps us see the main subject of the picture while the other gives us peeks into how the shot was made. Perspective on perspective, views that give us different views. This one is all kinds of meta.
Forest in the Winter
Here we have a stunning overhead shot of a winter forest scene. Vibrant green snowless trees stand next to snow-covered grassland. There’s a starkness to this forest that’s rather unusual, don't you think? The icy landscape alongside gives the forest a haunting quality – a sign that winter is slowly but surely approaching and waiting to take over.
Call that unsettling or calm, it’s all subjective. But this is about as good as landscape photography gets. A unique perspective that has eluded us for years until drones came around and captured it. The results are stunning. And the comment it makes about the synergy between technology and art is exciting.
Get Out of the Water
Here we go again with the sharks! We get that they’re fascinating creatures, but must one really admire them up close? And then proceed to share pictures with the world? It seems that people want us to never be able to fall asleep. Or to never get in the water again.
Whatever it is, it’s working. If you want me scared, you’ll be happy to know we're utterly terrified. But at least it’s not a crocodile. Because crocs seem more determined to bite now that we think about it. Who’s with us? We wonder who would win a battle royale between a shark and a croc. Send out the drones!
Coastlines and Dreamscapes
In the eyes of a drone, the stunning Algarve coastline looks like a portal to another world. From above, the sands and cliffs blend into an intricate mosaic that could well be the brushstrokes of a cosmic artist. It is as if the earth herself has dipped her fingertips in paint. The results?
A photograph that’s familiar and also fantastical. The beach takes on the hues of another planet almost, a ruddy shade reminiscent of Mars. All it takes is drone photography to change a day at the beach into a dreamscape. The Algarve coastline, as captured through the lens of a drone, transforms into a world that's both real and surreal.
Rediscovering a City
For those looking to see any city with fresh eyes, getting a drone might just be the trick. From certain angles, Hong Kong’s architectural wonders transform into a row of perfectly aligned wafer sticks. Do you see it too? Or are we the ones overdue for a snack? It’s a visual illusion that's as delightful as it is surprising, and it’s making us a little hungry!
Who thought gazing down at Hong Kong's skyline would leave you hankering for a sweet treat? Aerial shots always throw up surprising and unexpected connections, even better when that connection is food-related! Drone photography visualizes Hong Kong in a brand-new way.
