Groner Glacier, Switzerland

zimydakid

Just a simple, continuous shot this Drone Video of the Week nominee is a fantastic example of how a single shot can be compelling, but only if it's in one heck of a location. Groner Glacier is the second largest icepack in the Alps Mountains region and, like other glaciers, it is shrinking dramatically due to climate change. It's quite a magical site - you'll find yourself envying the man in the video who runs out to look over the glacier's beauty.

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 conciousness 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 German fiction.

Majestic Matterhorn: DJI Mavic Pro 2

Paride Musci

While the Matterhorn is not the tallest mountain in the Alps, it's certainly the most well known.  In part that's due to its distinctive pyramidal shape, which creates high visual prominence and also makes for an extremely difficult climb.  The first face wasn't tackled til 1865 and ended in the deaths of four climbers, and the fourth face wasn't scaled until 1962.   Contributor Paride Musci used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 to create this magnificent video of the majestic Swiss mountain.
