A drone took this photo?

Surge - Cape La Grand National Park (Photo: Kirk Hille /SkyPixel) Never underestimate the creative side of a drone — well, a drone paired with a really good photographer. Take this picture, for example. Photographer Kirk Hille captured this amazing photo, titled "Surge," at Lucky Bay in the Cape La Grand National Park, Australia. The photo captured the grand prize in SkyPixel's competition , which involved more than 10,000 entries from 146 countries. Ken Geiger, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and a SkyPixel competition judge, said “Surge” offered “a unique viewpoint, lovely color and composition” and “made an emotional connection with me, making me wish to be part of the scene.” Hille's photo was captured using a DJI Phantom 3 Pro. (For insight into using this kind of drone, check out MNN's review of the DJI Phantom Vision+ .) For more surprises, keep scrolling:
