Watching the Earth’s texture from above, through the freedom borrowed by the skies, new patterns are unveiled and creation breathes.
This was shot in the Hveravellig geothermal area, located on the edge of the 8000 year old Kjalhraun lava field, showing one of the bubbling hot pools.
I had seen some very interesting photos of the place, but was quite disappointed when I realized there was lot of smoke coming from the fumaroles, and most of the bubbling pools were quite far aways from the camera, protected by ropes, to keep visitors from stepping on 100ºC soil. It was extremely difficult to find interesting angles, and then I decided to grab my drone and try different approaches. Along with some video clips I started making vertical photos, and this composition really caught my eye!
Thanks to HP Modelismo, the best Portuguese Drone Shop, for making this photo possible!
