DRON­ING ON Some­where on high

Wanderlust Travel Magazine (UK) - - Viewfinder - Pho­tog­ra­phers Tugo Cheng, Karim Iliya & Jerome Cour­tial

While the laws on where you can fly a drone are pretty strict in big ci­ties and na­tional parks, when in the wild or out at sea, you’ve usu­ally got a lit­tle more lee­way – the rough rule of the winds aside. And whether you’re tak­ing an ex­treme selfie in the black stone forests of Sichuan, China, like Tugo Cheng ( main im­age), or cap­tur­ing a swim­mer bat­tling the swell of a break­ing wave, like Karim Iliya ( top left), get­ting a new an­gle on your trav­els can be ir­re­sistible. These are just a few ex­am­ples from Mas­ters of Drone Pho­tog­ra­phy, a new book on the world of top-down travel. We also loved Jerome Cour­tial’s shots of Cinque Terre and the laven­der fields of France ( mid­dle & bot­tom left), show­ing how fa­mil­iar sights can be raised to thrilling new heights.
