Scott Bauer 2018 Drone Reel

Scott Baue...

Top photographer Scott Bauer took his captures of the great state of Western Australia to new heights when he put both aerial perspective and motion into his work via his DJI Phantom 4 drone.  His native state gave him plenty of scenic locations too; this 2018 drone reel - nominated for Drone Video of the Week in October 2018 -  shows plenty of jaw-dropping and wonderfully artistic glimpses of the area endearingly referred to as West Oz, including Margaret River, and the coastal surf just south of Perth.

Why Does Nature Inspire Us? [Aerial Reel]

Merr Watso...

In this video from Western Australia, top contributor Merr Watson wonders aloud what about nature inspires each of us. Narrating her answer over stunning aerial shots of the countryside, she says it inspires her because it reminds her that there is something so much bigger than each of us, keeping us truly present in the moment and reminding us that there is always room to grow.  Western Australia is one of the six states (plus two territories) of this massive country, covering most of its western half.

In this video, top contributor Merr Watson shows us a part of Australia that few people ever see.  It's shot in the area to the north of Perth, the capital of the gigantic state of Western Australia which is home to about 80% of its population.  The video starts around the Margaret River region (where Perth lies) and heads north, to the   Pinnacles, the great rock formations near Cervantes.  Continuing further north, she heads to Port Gregory and ends up at Kalbarri, about 600 km (around 370 mi.) north of Perth.

Perth is the capital of Western Australia, the vast state which would be a large country on its own.  Roughly 80% of Western Australia's 2.5 million inhabitants live in this city on the Indian Ocean, making it the fourth largest city in the country after Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.  The city is extremely remote from other Australian cities, the closest one being Adelaide nearly 2.7k km (1.5k mi) away.  Using a DJI Inspire 2 drone, contributor Intrepid Drone Services created this memorable aerial video of Perth at sunset.

Through My Eyes: Esperance, Western Australia

Merr Watso...

This recap of a trip to Western Australia is another gem by contributor and travel vlogger Merr Watson. She visited Esperance, a small city on the lightly populated southern coast of WA.  In Merr's own words: “words cannot describe how truly beautiful Esperance is with its stunning white, sandy beaches, rocky coastlines, extremely turquoise waters and magical sunsets. It had left me breathless and I never wanted to leave!”  Watch the video and you will likely share her sentiment!

Coastline

Jaxon_robe...

When it comes to filming people in beautiful locations, top AirVuz contributor Jaxon Roberts is a standout.  His video "Byron Bay" is one of the most popular on the site, with well over a million views.  So when he says that this video was his favorite to film, you know it's worth a watch.  He filmed it on the other side of the country, in Western Australia.  The sequence does a beautiful job of introducing the natural backdrop, then the human subject, and then combining the two for a great finale, all in a single continuous shot.

The title says it all. Take a trip surfing, snorkling, jetskiing, boating, suntanning, and whale watching in this water adventure piece by contributor and pilot azure_co. Shot on a DJI Phantom 3 along the stunning shoreline of the state of Western Australia, it's pretty amazing what the group was able to capture on what is now considered an older drone.

Top contributor, drone pilot and vlogger Sandrine Hecq donned her swimsuit and grabbed her drone, allowing her to create this stunning video from Esperance in the state of Western Australia.  Esperance lies on the southern coastline of this gigantic state, which would be amongst the ten largest countries in the world in land area if it were independent.  And with 80% of its population living in and around Perth (on WA's west coast, over 700 km or 450 mi. from Esperance), that leaves a lot of open spaces to explore.

Sky Perth...

While the Australian surfing scene is most closely associated with the eastern beaches around Sydney in New South Wales and the Gold Coast area of in Queensland, Western Australia also has some of the best surfing beaches in the world.  The endless coastline and a much lower population density of the vast state make for some incredible spots to ride the waves.  In this video, contributor and pilot Sky Perth uses a drone to give us a bird's eye look at one of these spots, in WA's Margaret River region.

In this very popular drone video by contributor Jaimen Hudson, he filmed a stand up paddleboarder cruising the waters off of Esperance, in Western Australia.  While it's not possible to know with certainty if the paddleboarder was aware of it, two giant whales are swimming just a few meters/feet underneath him.  The unforgettable bird's eye view of this scene is testament to the power of drones to look at our world from entirely new perspectives which would be otherwise impossible to see.

Known for his exciting and artistic music videos and long, hypnotic edits, top content creator and drone pilot Jaxon_roberts brings us something much simpler but, arguably, intimately more beautiful - a pod of over 50 dolphins swimming through the waters off the Australian coast. The video gives you a sense of serenity, peace and a hopeful perspective. This 45 second piece was shot off the coast of Esperance, in the state of Western Australia.  It's all the more fitting because "esperance" is French for hope.

Isabellefa...

Western Australia is home to many amazing and unique animals, plants, and naturally occurring phenomenona - one of which is its pink lakes. Yes, pink.  This very unusual but very natural phenomenon is caused by a combination of high salt content, several salt-loving bacteria, and different types of red and pink algae that give the lakes their unique shade. Creative pilot and adventurer Isabellefabre does what she does best while visiting one of these lakes - windsurfing the fuchsia waters.

Gold mining was single most important activity which drove the growth of modern Australia.  It began with the great strikes on the eastern side of the continent, in New South Wales and Victoria in the mid 1800's.  The first big strikes in Western Australia occurred later in the century, and gold is still being mined there, albeit in smaller quantities.  Contributor CarrandDrone worked with the operator of the Edna May Gold Mine in WA over six months to produce this fascinating video of the modern gold mining process.
