Have a look at this video of a man dancing on top of a harvester while the dark sky lights up behind him with lightning strikes. It is quite an amazing scene. The video is shot with a drone and the higher vantage point adds drama and enables you to see things you may otherwise miss. Kind of like this guy in the ocean. The drone video was recorded in the town of Toowoomba, Queensland, which is close to Brisbane on the east coast of Australia.
In the video, the drone slowly circles the harvester and you get a good view of the dark and ominous looking scene. The frequent lightning strikes in the beginning of the clip help set the mood for what only can be described as the world’s most dramatic harvest dance ever.

Antarctica has to be one of the least human-friendly places on earth, one could visit in terms of weather conditions, yet last week it was the scene of some amazing feats, including the fastest Antarctic mile ever run, as well as the Antarctic Ice Marathon and 100k(!) race events. The event has been documented partly by drone in the amazing video you can see below. The scenery at the Union Glacier in Antarctica, just 650 miles from the South Pole, is amazingly beautiful and the drone footage is very cinematic.
Grab a coffee and enjoy watching this short movie.
Last weekend in South Beach Florida, Kenny Melendez, who flies drones professionally, was flying his drone when he spotted a large shadow in the water right next to a swimmer. He flew the drone towards it to get a better shot of the large shark, which he believes to have been a tiger shark, very close to the shore and the swimmers.
