Sometimes, drones are simply in the right place at the right time and are able to capture a momentary view brought about by certain weather or light conditions. The effects of sun, wind, rain or snow can alter the way we understand a landscape and even transform seemingly mundane views into spectacular sights.
This photo, taken at La Rocque, Jersey, captures the moment that a rainbow appears in the sky following a rainstorm. It lights up the sky in a striking combination of oranges, yellows and greens, which add depth to the image and imbue the place with a sense of drama and action. Caught in this light, the tower shifts from an inanimate object to a living being, nature being the agent responsible for making this change happen.
This is the first description which isn’t attempting to sound too clever and super-intellectual and pompous (and doesn’t use unnecesary made-up words like “reperspectivisation”). Thank goodness for that.
The image is quite striking (though not particularly sharp) and could probably have been taken from ground level without the use of a drone.
Colour balance error?
Don’t get it.
wonderful mood and perspective
