Shooting from a tiny islet in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Western Norway, contributor and drone pilot hopenorway casts his drone up into the air and gives it a big smile.  There are many ways to take a good dronie, but what makes this one baffling is that although he's surrounded by sea water, there's not one drop of water on his knickers. It's one of the reasons why this video was nominated as a Finalist in the Dronies category for the second annual AirVuz Drone Video Awards.
