Perfect timing and composition again as the overhead drone catches a priceless moment in time. A pair of lovely women stretch out on the beach waiting for the waves to wash over them. Few things compare to the feel of sand and water on skin.
Plus, check out the blending colors and the symmetry in the composition. The women blend in with the sand oh so effortlessly, as if this is where they were always meant to be. They’re daughters of the ocean, and they know it! We think we have a winner because this is what photography is all about.
Bird's Nest Bird's Eye View
Here’s another perfect example of a beautiful photo that only a drone could have given us. The overhead view of an already high-up bird’s nest gives us a perspective that previous generations could not have imagined. It’s not every day we get to see a nest from above and not on the side.
Check out the exquisite detail in this picture! Really brings out the coziness of a nest. And since we’re here talking about birds, help me out a little here. We’ve always wondered: if storks bring babies to people, who brings storks their babies? Other storks? Maybe carrier pigeons? We obviously need to brush up on our ornithology and creative thinking too!
Hammerhead Up Close
Hammerheads are truly frightening creatures to look at. They are clearly creatures of another dimension, too fantastical for the likes of us to comprehend. And yet they co-exist or try to with mere mortals. We're not sure we would even want our drone to get this close to one, so props to the obviously skilled operator for managing it.
But in real life? The shark wouldn’t need to kill us; we’d drop dead of fright on the spot! We’ve always considered hammerheads the scary clowns of the sea. They look so ridiculous, you can imagine them getting teased in fish school (fish school! Get it??) except they’re, you know, GIANT KILLER SHARKS!
From Fantasy to Urban Facades
That Hong Kong has amazing architecture is a truth well-known. But this aerial photography captured from the ground up reveals mysteries even writers like JRR Tolkien might not have anticipated. Densely packed, towering skyscrapers stretch toward the heavens from a circular pattern that closely resembles the Eye of Sauron.
The Dark Lord is alive and well, albeit in a more futuristic avatar! His dominion looks different but also the same. Sure, there are no fiery pits, orcs, or trolls in this world. But we have substitutes - men in suits, global warming, and the glitzy lights of capitalism. And of course, there’s still the relentless pursuit of power AKA the one ring that binds them all.
Wild nature! When a drone operator was expecting a nice nighttime cityscape but he ended up with something much more exciting! Have you ever seen so much lightning bursting out of a single thundercloud – its tentacles reaching across the sky and ground? We wonder if the drone’s circuitry got fried.
The awesome power of nature is not a force to be trifled with. We just can’t get enough of pictures like this. When they are beautifully photographed, they are able to touch a very deep part of me. We guess you could call it inspiring and deeply humbling. It makes me feel small yet also a part of something larger.
