20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Drone/Aerial
Mini Mississippi

I took this photo of the Mississippi River with my DJI Mini 2 drone. The photo was taken in the summer of 2021, before the drought hit and dried up large swaths of the river. The location of the shot is outside of Elaine, Arkansas in Phillips County, in the middle of the river facing Arkansas with Mississippi on the other side. I created a tilt shift effect to make the mighty river look miniature.
