My drone hovered just above the trees. I played with the shadows when I heard the screams of birds. In a moment, geese appeared. They flew between my drone and the tops of the trees. I felt the wind from under their wings on my skin. It was one short magical, peaceful, ideal moment. Proof video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RE75Uyd2s-g&feature=youtu.be
It takes more than one attempt to get back to location in order to get all desired weather conditions in one day. It was one of those November mornings where all the conditions coincided, the rest of the week was rainy and gray.
An amazing and rare phenomenon has arisen on the Vigala River in Estonia. This perfectly flat disc rotates.
“Such discs sometimes form on the outer bends of rivers, where, due to the accelerating flow, there is a slow rotation of ice. Rotating ice grinds on the surrounding ice, thereby acquiring a surprisingly round shape "
Nature has it's own way of making a statement and time is it's friend. I found the leaves arranged on the wooden table and it was very interesting to me to see the contrast in colours, both caused by ageing/ time.The leaves had fallen off the tree as a sign of a new transition, from fall to winter and the wooden table, on the other hand had been weathered by long exposure to the atmosphere, the small screws on the table are also a little rusty and turned brown from their usual shiny grey as a result of ageing . There's a beautiful story that each can tell but the only constant denominator here is time.
I work as a cook on a daily basis. I came home around 2:30 at night. Made a cup of tea before bed. Sat on terrace and scrolled social media on my phone. By the time I finished my tea, I looked in the sky, the clouds were getting the colour and I was about an hour away from sunrise.
I got into a panic, if not now, who knows when I'll get next shot. Packed my gear, ran to a car and start driving. Chased the cloud. Sunrise is 15 minutes away. I stopped by the cliff of Türisalu, Estonia. Ran down the cliff to the beach. The branch was just waiting there for me, he almost called like ''Shoot me, you won't regret'' I took the shot, I took 3 shots that morning in total. Started to drive back home, almost asleep behind the wheel. But I was happy, I got the shot. Made it home safely, slept 3hours and went back to work, tired as hell, but happy and satisfied that I got the magical shot.
I called this photo "Butterflies sleeping on the beach." It is shot on a drone. I flew over the shore and looked for beautiful plans. Suddenly I noticed that the boards with sails scattered on the sand are very similar with butterflies. I thought, "This is it!". During the
holiday on Tenerife I took a lot of pictures. But this one is my favorite.
- Рейтинг фотографов по странам и городам строится на основе 3-х лучших фотографий автора и их относительной позиции в каждой отдельной номинации. Рейтинг в номинации "Мобильная фотография" учитывается в меньшей степени для формирования рейтинга. В списке показывается одна фотография автора с лучшим рейтингом.
- В списке опубликованы только работы которые прошли 2-й этап голосования.
- The rating of photographers by countries and cities is based on the three best photos of the author and their relative position in each separate nomination. Rating in the nomination "Mobile Photography" is taken into account to a lesser extent for rating formation. The list shows one photo of the author with the best rating.
- Only those photos have been published in the list that passed the second stage of voting.
More recently, we have made an improvement and now we have a new feature - "Series uploading." Even now, you can download from 3 to 10 photos in the series, united by a common idea. Voting for the series will take place separately from other series in their nominations. vote principle remains the same as for single photos. At the moment, series uploading is available for nominations: "Children's Photography", "Wild Animals", "Staged Photography" and "Reportage photo". This feature is available for any improved account.
