Ice Caves Are Cool

Um. Sorry about the title, I couldn’t help myself.

Strapping a GoPro to a drone is one way of getting some fairly astonishing footage – as the fireworks from Florida have shown – and here’s another example from Alaska. The drone pilot in this case took his little flyer right into the ice caves of the Mendenhall Glacier, getting floating POV shots that would be far too difficult to get any other way. I’m really excited to see what kind of new techniques and images are going to come from drones as they become more and more prevalent (let’s leave aside the privacy issues for the moment, which are troublesome for sure).
