During our stay in the fantastic Berjaya Langkawi Resort in Pulau Langkawi, Malaysia I was finally able to take my latest technical gadget for a test-drive: My DJI Phantom 4 drone, which enables me to take pictures from a bird’s-eye view. At first I couldn’t decide where to take my drone for its maiden flight, but after a while the heavenly coast of Langkawi, Malaysia seemed like the perfect place. The picture of the sapphire blue sea and the lush forest, together with the small wooden chalets of the resort prove that I couldn’t have picked a more suitable place – this coastal stretch deserves to be captured from above in all its beauty.
When I finally let my phantom 4 loose into the clear blue sky, I had no idea that this would be the moment a new passion was born. I am absolutely fascinated by the aerial photographs, which I didn’t have to take from a helicopter or a plane, but instead could shoot them comfortably and remotely from the ground. However, this tiny flying camera doesn’t only take stunning pictures from a perspective, which is completely new to most of us, but is also a lot of fun to fly. I, for one got totally hooked and will let my DJI drone fly through the highest heights on a regular basis in order to rejoice on the breathtaking aerial photographs afterwards. I hope you like those pictures from above as much as I do.
