Eruptions and a polar bear at play: Drone photo awards 2022 in pictures

A look at the winning entries into the Drone photo awards 2022, including the overall winner showing a secondary fissure a few hundred metres from the main crater of the Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland. Works by the winning photographers will be exhibited in November in Italy at the Siena awards festival.

Some fantastic images... the aerial perspective sure can result in some stunning compositions!

Some nice inspiring ideas there. Not like I ever have opportunity to photograph a volcano or a polar bear. Or a polar bear swimming in a volcano.

BTW, they don't call these the "Dronies"??

Interesting that most of the photos are straight down.

I think it is because it often reveals patterns that aren't seen with more normal views. I often shoot a "normal" view with mine, just using the drone to gain a perspective I could not otherwise reach. But the ones looking down are often the most interesting, I'm still learning this new tool.

I just read articles in the NY Times, about a production of the opera "Medea" where there is a giant slanted mirror at the rear of the stage, which gives the audience a top-down view of the action, and about a dance company performance which simultaneously showed a video shot from above.

If you want to go way back, movie musicals choreographed by Busby Berkeley often showed elaborate ("kaleidoscopic") dance numbers from directly above.
