The only thing more awe-inspiring than the quality of this photo is the natural phenomenon it depicts. We know of regular halos or even halos around the sun. But a mountain halo is as rare as it gets. The halo surrounding this mountain is like something out of an oil painting.
Sending a drone out into the wilderness to find these sights must have been quite a project! Distant landscapes are often inaccessible, and when you can get to them, the angles and perspectives are often quite limited. Modern use of drones helps to solve both problems to stunning effect.
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!
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!
Rediscovering a City
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.
