One of many stunning issues about aerial and drone images is which you could admire the earth from a totally completely different perspective. You may typically see issues from an angle that from the bottom you simply can’t admire. These pictures that photographer Stefan Liebermann captured lately of what appears to be like like an underwater waterfall do precisely that.
Stefan was visiting the Island of Mauritius and flew his drone over the Le Morne Brabant peninsula. The peninsula is on the far most South Western tip of the island and boasts its personal microclimate. However don’t fear, the island isn’t in any imminent hazard of being sucked down a waterfall beneath the ocean, it’s, in fact, an optical phantasm.
Stefan climbed 600 metres up the mountain as a way to profit from his DJI Mavic 2 Pro‘s altitude. He flew the drone 4 kilometres out and round 300 metres excessive. He then took a number of nonetheless pictures to create these panoramic pictures of the entire scene, combining between 10 and 12 pictures.
Any self-respecting photographer is aware of that there’s no nice shot with out a little ache, and Stefan says that the climb up the mountain was “steep and a little bit exhausting”. He additionally commented that flying the drone 4 kilometres out and again put a number of stress on the battery. The drone managed to make it again with zero battery left on not way more than a wing and a prayer, in response to Stefan.
Nonetheless, even with a steep climb and a trashed battery, these pictures make it value it. So what’s precisely happening within the picture then if it isn’t actually a waterfall?
It’s really simply the silt and sand sediments being moved round by the ocean currents that create this unbelievable impact. It’s apparently fairly protected to swim and surf there with out fear of getting sucked down a waterfall. Both means, I’m including it to my checklist of locations to go to!
