When I first discovered Iguaçu Falls while planning the Brazil trip for the 2014 World Cup, it was the most impressive natural wonder I had ever seen. I knew a camera would never be able to fully capture an experience of this scale. Even in a helicopter, I would not be able to get close enough. I pondered for days on how I would be able to capture the falls and do it justice. After researching DJI’s drones, I was so impressed with how advanced the flight technology was and knew that this was the solution.
I was in awe at the first sight of the falls. Then I realized I was only looking at a small portion of it; there was a 1 mile hike to get to the other end. Every lookout along the way was gorgeous. Capturing this waterfall was the biggest driving factor for me buying a drone. I received it about a week before the trip. And this is the result.
