My friend who is a Pilot for Air Safaris in my hometown, Lake Tekapo - New Zealand, asked if I wanted to join her on a flight as she had a spare seat. Of course I could not say no, as surrounding Lake Tekapo are beautiful mountains and stunning scenery!
I took this flying out of Utah on my way to California to get out of the Utah winter haze. In Salt Lake we experience this awful weather phenomenon called ‘inversion’ where all the icky pollution gets trapped below the mountain ranges. It gets so bad in the winter it becomes hard to breath. However, sometimes the haze creates the most eerie, yet beautiful, scenery. I was stuck by this scene because of it’s beauty but also by the strange notion that it wouldn’t ever look like this if not for human pollution in the air.
I love California Sunsets. It’s where I’ve been born and bred. But, just below my love for California is my affinity toward Batman. Perhaps this is me projecting, but that sure looks like Batman’s cowl at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. If you dig it, check me out @Troynikolic for all my stuff.
We broke through the open fence at the middle of the bridge to climb down under and find where the rocks met the sea. I launched the drone over a hundred metres up above the bridge to capture this crazy view. One of my favourite shots I’ve taken here.
After walking for 45 minutes through horizontal snow and driving wind, we finally saw the shape appear of the whiteness. In this alien and martian landscape there is now color, simply the black sand of the beach and the white of the snow.
