Flores From Above: Aerial Panoramas of an Epic Liveaboard Dive Trip

The islands East of Flores look amazing from the air.

This gallery includes aerial highlights from the May 2017 dive trip on the Seven Seas.

It was the first big trip since I picked up a DJI Mavic Pro drone. Have to say it was great to add a whole new angle to the shots.

Most of the photos in the gallery are aerial panoramic photos. It's a new technique I've been experimenting with recently. Pretty awesome so see the beauty of the Coral Triangle from a bird's eye perspective 🙂

Will try to post a tutorial at some point about shooting aerial panoramas - they're one of my favorite new photo techniques and a great way to give an immersive experience to huge landscapes and seascapes.

Check out the gallery below to see the photo highlights, or see the all the photo galleries from our East of Flores liveaboard dive trip - from scuba diving, to aerial photos, to freediving, to island culture, to portraits of the people who live in this amazing place. You can also see galleries from other Seven Seas liveaboard dive trips - my absolute favorite way to explore the awesome natural beauty and unique cultures of Indonesia.
