One of the amazing things about DJI's Mavic Pro 2 is the way it combines portability with an outstanding camera. Released in late 2018, the foldable drone weighs less than a kg. (about two lbs.), yet its Hasselbad camera holds its own against cameras on much heavier models.  This allows content creators to put their MP2 in a backpack and head for the hills.  That's what Drone My Life did to create this stunning sunset view of the mountains of Switzerland; this video was picked as a DVOW winner in October, 2019.

Davos is a ski resort town in central Switzerland.  At one point, the mountain air of the area was deemed beneficial to people with lung conditions, and many luminaries went there to convalesce.  Davos has also carved its way into cultural consciousness through literature: a real-life Davos sanitorium served as the inspiration for author Thomas Mann when he was writing his opus The Magic Mountain.  Published in 1924, the novel is considered one of the great works of 20th-century fiction and of all German novels.

Mountain passes have always been critical to understanding the geography of Europe's Alps region.  In historical times, these mountain gaps were often used to site fortresses to protect cities in the valleys.  In modern times, passes have been critical to the siting of more peaceful forms of communications such as roads, railways, and telephone wires.  In this drone video by zekedrone, you'll get an aerial view of Switzerland's Julier Pass; it connects two valleys within the Canton of Grisons.

The Verzasca Dam (also known as Contra Dam) is the fourth-tallest dam in Switzerland but probably the most well-known. The reason is that it was the "co-star" of one of the most famous stunt scenes in cinematic history: the bungee-jumping sequence which opened the 19th James Bond movie, GoldenEye (1995).  In this drone video by Kpax, you'll get a bird's eye view of the 1960's-era structure in Ticino, the Italian-speaking Canton in southeastern Switzerland.  It's on the Verzasca river, just upstream from Lake Maggiore.
