Treeline Under Stars

From the sunny beaches in southern California, to the wild, lush forests of northern Washington, nearly every mile of the USA's Pacific coast is worth a stop. Sfdrones takes several moments in Oregon and Washington to capture the beauty of winter clinging to the mountains and trees. The choice to edit the piece in black and white was a risk, but we believe it gives the viewer a sense of the beauty and stillness the pilot felt while taking in his surroundings.
