The jury of the fourth annual international Drone Photography Contest has recently chosen the most fascinating photos taken with the help of drones. There were 4 nominations: Nature, Urban, People and Creativity. Three best photos were chosen in each of them.
The first place in the category “Urban” was won by a Lebanese Bachir Moukarze. He took a photo of Dubai. It was a desert ten years ago. Now it is a large city with the highest skyscrapers in the world.
The second place belongs to the photo by a physicist from Moscow Alexey Goncharov. He captured the work of industrial climbers on “Mercury Tower”. It seems as though they are washing Moscow itself, not just the building.
The third beautiful photo in the category “Urban” was taken by a student Luis Saguar Domingo. He took a photo of Madrid from a great height.
The first prize in the nomination “Nature” went to the photo with a lavender field in Provence. It was taken by Jerome Courtial. The author says that he had to wait several hours till he could capture such a beauty.
The photo of a road winding in the forest to Transylvania got the second prize in the nomination “Nature”. It was taken by a professional photographer from Romania Calin Stan. According to the legend, the count Dracula was flying above the road at night.
The third place was won by a French photographer Florian Ledoux. These pieces of ice were photographed in Iceland. The author went there because he liked cold weather. It is interesting that the drone was attacked by two falcons because it was flying on their territories.
The first prizewinner in the category “People” is a photo by Martin Sanchez. He called his works “End of the line”. A person is falling down from a high building (the photo was taken on the ground).
We know very little about the author of a photo which won the second place in the category “People”. He (or she) presented the photo under the nickname of Helios1412. The photo shows a woman gathering water lilies in Mekong.
The third place belongs to the photo of a Spanish winter carnival “La Vijanera” in Silió. People are wearing sheepskin and long caps.
The first one in nomination “Creativity” is a photo of a giant child’s drawing on sand. It looks as if a child is going to fall down from the ship into the ocean with a hungry shark.
The second picture in the same nomination is a photo of cows standing on the banks of the river near Cape Town. A citizen of South Africa Luke Bell took it early in the morning when shadows were big and clear.
The third prize went to the photo of a married couple. It is also a drawing on sand. Authors wanted to show their friends that they would soon become parents.
