This drone photo is a genuine work of art. You’re looking at a group of fishermen casting their net (the huge blue objects) into the sea from their fishing boat. The pops of bright blue against brown are a sight for sore eyes. We’re not sure what they’re going to catch in such shallow water.
You see some of the men are in the boat, while others are literally wading on the sandy bottom. But you never know. If there’s one thing we know about water, it’s always full of pleasant and sometimes nasty surprises. That prized catch of the day doesn’t seem likely, so we’re happy with a drone shot of the day instead.
Swimming with the Fishes
Swimming with the fishes...or a whale...or a whale shark. You know, like, whatever. Let’s just call it swimming with sea life and leave it at that. Kind of a freaky photo. We know it’s probably totally safe, but you won’t find me swimming with a creature like that. They look docile and friendly enough.
But if there’s one thing the ocean teaches us, it’s the element of surprise. You never know what you’re going to get. But you go ahead. You do you! We admit it would be almost worth getting into the water with this giant fish just to be able to show off this amazing photo forever. Will we actually do it? Absolutely not.
Outstanding action shot! Is this a ray from one of the Earth's oceans, or is it a science fiction spaceship? You decide! The camera caught the very moment the Mobula devil ray breached (flew out of the water). It’s an exceptionally lucky shot.
Space exploration might be incredible but the depths of the ocean contain secrets just as wondrous we’re certain. Scientists have explored and mapped only 5 percent of the ocean. That’s a whopping 95 percent of “who knows what lies beneath.” The ocean is endlessly fascinating and terrifying. For now, we're content with seeing what it wants me to see!
Where Planes Go to Be Salvaged
It’s a graveyard...for airplanes! Thousands upon thousands of airplanes from the US military have been brought here when they were no longer needed for active service. Unfortunately it’s mostly off-limits to visitors, but if we’re not mistaken, you'll be dreaming about it tonight!
Known as the world’s largest airplane boneyard, it serves a number of functions. Some planes are stored in case they’re ever needed again. Others are sent there for repair. And others are disassembled for scrap and spare parts. A place where planes go to die or find new life. It’s a stunning visual display – of military might and stories of bravery that will turn into physical dust but live on in collective memory.
A Picture-Perfect Fish Farm at Faroe Islands, Denmark
Do we see fish farms or ethereal crop circles in the water? The world is your oyster when water meets the sky, and the two elements meet drone photography! We love how human endeavor and nature come together seamlessly in this drone shot near Sandavagur village in Denmark.
Although manmade, the fish farms stand harmoniously in the waters. And is it just me or are they starting to resemble Buddhist mandalas – symbols of an ideal universe and the ebb and flow that is life? It’s almost a reminder that the key to existence is in striking a balance. We take from nature relentlessly without a thought of giving back.
