“Comet Into Darkness” by Drone Hikers. Second Prize, Landscape, Professional. “One of my favorite shots. An early morning in Newfoundland, I was hiking on the East Coast Trail when I heard a bunch of seagulls. I quickly launched my drone to find-out what was causing the mayhem. It was a small cod fishing boat steaming towards the harbor, a truly magical moment.”
