Drone contest

“It was the day after Christmas of 2015, my girlfriend and I, after a lovely lunch at my parents’ home which is in the beautiful Umbria, we decided to go for a walk in Assisi. It was a foggy day, nonetheless I decided to go up in the sky to see more from above, and after the drone came out from the clouds the view was spectacular and got me completly astonished and, without breathing, I had the time to take some shots before the sun went down and the cloud got higher hiding everything.”

1st Prize Winner – Category Sports Adventure: Moab Rock climbing by maxseigal
Drone contest

“I spent the day filming a couple friends of mine who were trying to put up a first ascent on some epic offwidth climbing routes in the desert. We hiked for miles looking for the perfect line, and then spotting this amazing crack that was about 400 feet off the ground. Using the drone, I was able to capture images that would have never been possible before!”

1st Prize Winner – Category Nature Wildlife: Kalbyris forest, Denmark by mbernholdt
Drone contest
“The Emerald is a small patch of pinewood surrounded by mixed forest and a small creek. The Emerald is the very first series of pictures I took with my Phantom 3. That was the very first dedicated photo trip I planned with my drone, after three months of owning it and only having the chance to fly it seven times due to the terrible weather we have in Denmark during the winter months. I had been spending hours on Google maps, in satellite mode, trying to locate interesting patterns and places. I all ready had a pretty good idea about what I should expect when I arrived at the location. To my luck it had snowed all day so that the pine wood really stood out.”

Second and third winning pictures will be presented as well with the descriptions in days to come! However, if you’re impatient 🙂
