From Above: Whales Visit Stand Up Paddle Boarder, Australia.

Jaimen Hudson became quadriplegic after a motorcycle accident, but can control his drone with his thumbs and shoulder movements and here captures his friend Dave Price paddle boarding with whales off the west coast of Australia.
“It just so happened that he was out at the time, and a few people let me know there were whales on the beach and it all just went from there,” Hudson said in an online interview.
“They were really curious and came over to meet [Dave]…
Just very inquisitive about him, I don’t think it was really that dangerous at all.”

Northern Lights, Iceland by Myrdal.

Beautiful shot of the Northern Lights from the perspective of a drone by Oli Haukur Myrdal based in Keflavik, Iceland.
Using a high-end camera (Sony a7S II) that can handle low-light settings and strapping it to a drone, Myrdal was able to capture stunning views of the Reykjanes Peninsula with just enough moonlight to light up the scenes.
The motion of the drone and the different perspectives gives the film a real dimensionality.
