IT’S been a tough year for photographers being cooped up inside and unable to travel like they used to.
But anyone looking for proof that photography is still being taken to new heights need only see the entries for the Siena Awards Festival‘s Drone Photo Awards.
The highly coveted competition shows off some of the most talented snapshots from around the world – at dizzying heights that can only be reached by drone.
Spanish photographer Ignacio Medem shot this stunning snap in the Asturias region in northwest Spain. The image was commended in the nature category.
The breathtaking picture – called Bouncing Waves – was selected as one of the 45 top-ranked pictures that will be showcased in the ‘Above Us Only Sky’ exhibition.
The event, which runs from October 24 to November 29, will take place at the Accademia dei Fisiocritici in Siena, one of the oldest Italian science museums.
