The Seattle-based photographer Jon Cornforth using a remote controlled Hexacopter and captures the most stunning locations, while he remains on dry land. The astonishing bird’s eye view give you a feel like you’re gliding in over the island and it is not too far from the truth. The flying camera capture the beautiful images of Wailua Falls at sunrise, the turquoise waters of Kiholo Bay and Puu Pehe, also known as Sweetheart Rock, Maui, Lanai, and Kauai were taken by photographer.

He said; the exciting thing about flying a remote-controlled hexacopter is the photographic possibilities that are opened up by being freed of the limitations of being on the ground or shoreline. There’re several remote places that I travel to that where it is either unworkable or impossible to rent an aircraft to shoot aerials views out the window. I am also mostly flying over dangerous terrain or water, so I’ve to be very confident in my equipment and abilities. Everyone who has seen my fly images really recognizes my effort. It is the most intense and focused ten minutes of my life and even very stressful, but I’m glad to have the rewards are worth it when I am creating beautiful images like these.
