17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Fall From Above

While exploring and fishing Alaska this fall, I was able to fly my drone during the peak of the autumn colors. I knew I could get a cool perspective of the river if I flew directly overhead and pointed the camera straight down. As I was in the air, I traveled the river looking for the brightest leaves and the best composition. The resulting photo is my favorite shot. Hard to beat Alaska in the fall.
