Drone My Life

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.

Topping out at almost 2.5k meters (about 8.1k ft.) above sea level, the Great St. Bernard Pass is one of the highest road passes in Switzerland. The pass runs through the Valais Alps (a subchain of the larger Alps system, in western Switzerland and France), and was named after Saint Bernard of Monthon, who founded a hospice on the pass in 1049. The area became famous for its use of what are now known as St Bernard dogs in rescue missions. See the mountain pass from above in this drone video by Kpax.
