Drone accidentally records stunning sunset behind gigantic wind turbines
Drones allow videographers to capture incredible footage of things we simply couldn't see without a bird's eye perspective. Able to fly up close or above the action, they bring the camera, and the viewer right up to things that would be possible otherwise. Wind turbines are a good example of something that few people ever see close up. We can see them from the road as we drive past a wind farm. We might even see them from the ground, some distance away, but these drones bring us within a few metres of the massive propellers for a look that is stunning.
Another thing that is simply breath taking is a sunset filmed or viewed from a high vantage point. A hike up a big hill, or a trek to the top of a building will often be worth the effort just for a clear and unobstructed view of the setting sun. The colours and the spectacle are more beutiful when viewed from the right spot. Drones allow us to see what the setting sun looks like from the perfect angle and we get a wider view of the horizon for a panoramic view of the entire scene.
This drone operator flew his drone over the wind farm to capture footage of the huge machines and he realized that he was also set up for the fiery glow of dusk on the distant horizon over Lake Ontario.
Enjoy a perfectly timed view filmed from the ideal spot. Sometimes the most beautiful pictures and videos are captured completely by accident.
