Even everybody has an free access to programs like Google Earth View, real aerial photographs are getting more and more a favourite of photographers. The new drone´s technology gives you an economic access to a kind of photography that would cost lots of money by helicopter flights.
I was always dreaming of seeing Methana from above. The first contact to this have been the aerial photographs I could enjoy, when Dr. Lorenz Hurni was working on the digital map of Methana in 1991-1995. But drones gave me more freedom of creativity. In 2014 I got my first experience with the DJI Phantom Vision 2+ which helped me to realize my first images. In 2016 I was more experienced. In June 2016 I went every early morning to all places I would love to take from above. As an photographer I had my target to document the beauty of the entire volcanic landscape of Methana peninsula. After all these photos, I am sure, that all the area should be protected strictly and get a kind of a geological and natural heritage / national park.
