A flock of thousands of Pink-footed geese taking flight at their breeding grounds in Norway captured by local photographer Terje Kolaas won the top prize of the 2021 Drone Photo Awards.
The popular international contest of aerial photography last year received nearly 14,000 images for their 2020 edition from amateur and professional photographers from 104 countries. The Siena Awards also curate some amazing winners every year in still photography.
First prizes in the Drone Awards are presented in the eight categories—Nature, Wildlife, Urban, People, Sport, Abstract, Storyboard, and Wedding.
Oman photographer Qasim Al Farsi won the Wildlife category with “Back to Adventure,” an aerial shot that immortalizes a green turtle ready to return to the water after laying its eggs on the coast of Oman. Beautiful isn't it!
