This aerial image of an ice­berg in the Er­rera Chan­nel in Antarc­tica was made us­ing a lownoise drone, which Cris­to­bal flew high so as not to dis­turb the sleep­ing crabeater seals. The bird’s-eye per­spec­tive re­vealed a shal­low, heart-shaped pool in the cen­tre of the ice­berg – bright and blue in con­trast with the deep, dark ocean all around. “Hu­mans have tried to master the art of sculp­ture, but ice­bergs show us we are no match for na­ture’s great de­sign,” says Cris­to­bal. His photo was the win­ner in the “Cre­ative Vi­sions” cat­e­gory.

HOW? DJI Phan­tom 4 Pro Plus, 8.8 – 24 mm lens, shut­ter speed 1/120 sec­ond, aper­ture f4.5, ISO 100.
