Spectacular aerial photos and Drone Photo Awards 2021 winners
Produced by the Siena Price, on 2021 Drone photos prices celebrating the best in international drone photography. This year, a photo capturing thousands of geese roosting in the Arctic Circle was named the winner. Photographer Terje Kolaas patiently waited along their flight path and was able to admire this incredible scene with his drone. For his efforts, he will win € 500,000 (approximately $ 585,000) in photo equipment in addition to other prizes.
This year, tens of thousands of images were submitted by photographers from 102 countries. In addition to the first prize, nine category winners were also announced. The categories represent a wide range of topics, from sport and Wildlife To People and Wedding. Australian photographer Phil De Glanville won the Sport category with his incredible image of surfer Ollie Henry. As Henry rides a huge wave, a rainbow arises to make the moment even more magical.
Italian wedding photographer Matteo Original also seized the opportunity with his winning photograph Verso the Infinito Insieme a Te. The title, which translates to “Into Infinity With You,” refers to the breathtaking clouds that Original spotted on the horizon. By putting the couple on a long walk stretching towards the clouds, he was able to create a beautiful visual metaphor for their love.
All winning photographs will be featured in the Above us only the sky exhibition in Siena, Italy. The exhibition will run from October 23 to December 5, 2021 as part of the Siena Awards Festival.
