Interesting drone photos

Recommended Posts

At the end of the gray whale season, I was told about a gray whale that, for the last 3 years, used to play with the boats, pushing them gently.

So we went back the year after and, incredibly, the gray whale appeared and this shot is the result.

Many think that herons make nests in reeds or in a swamp. In fact, they nest in the tops of huge trees and with a drone,

it is sometimes possible to see them.

In winter, a shark is inside a salmon school when, chasing the baitfish, the shape becomes a heart shape.

The early morning sun lights a scene of flamingos gathered at the edge of Lake Logipi,

next to an interesting fan-like geological formation.

It's fascinating and wonderful when a wild critter wants to engage with you without you being the meal.

The busiest highway in Dubai, shot with no cars present during the lockdown

for the disinfection of the municipality. A moment to remember.

The phoenix rising is a symbol of re-emergence from the ashes of fire. This is symbolized through the beginnings of an actual regeneration process at the industrial mining site of Lake Owens. After a destructive past and the creation of the most toxic dustbowl in America, migratory birds are returning, and life is beginning anew…

Abstract Category Winner: Phoenix Rising

 

"If you have ever driven north on U.S. Highway 395 in California along the eastern side of the Sierra Nevadas in late summer, you may have noticed the vast, pinkish-red, salt flats of Owens Lake gleaming in the desert sun. Near the abandoned Pittsburgh Plate Glass soda ash plant, along the northwestern end of the lake, solar evaporation ponds may be colored a brilliant red. Similar pinkish brine pools can be seen along Highway 50, east of Fallon, Nevada."

A spectacular crater row in Iceland’s vast interior. The intense red on the rims is caused by the scoria being colored by the oxidation of the iron minerals in the lava, in contrast with the surrounding basalt. A white four-wheel-drive vehicle can be seen driving along the road beneath the craters.

If you have ever dreamed of your own private island, this shot will speak to your soul. A photographer captured this photo of an isolated getaway with a drone. The island is off the coast of Couples Tower Isle in Jamaica.

This photo of a lake of lava in a volcano was captured with a drone. The Erta Ale volcano in Ethiopia is also known as Smoking Mountain, and it’s easy to see why. The lava lake has been active since at least the 1960s.

This could be a child’s racetrack buried in a sandbox. In fact, it is a highway covered by sand. The photo was taken in Dubai. Sandstorms aren’t unusual in the United Arab Emirates, but it does look like cleaning up is a major headache.

The pic of the herons in the trees looks so fake!  Almost as bad as something I'd make in MS Paint when I was a kid.
