Fireworks Dazzle Over Lima, Peru in New Year's Drone Video [Watch]
A photographer has released amazing drone footage of New Year's Eve in the city of Lima, Peru.
Jeff Cremer captured an incredible view of the city's nighttime landscape, lit by a dazzling array of fireworks as far as the drone's eye could see.
The video was taken with a Phantom 3 Pro camera. According to the photographer, he sent the drone out at an altitude of 200 meters above Lima's Chorillos district. In the video's description on YouTube, Cremer said he wanted to fly lower, but he decided against it because of the danger posed by the explosions.
The footage was taken at 1080HD. Cremer kept the drone in motion and utilized a variety of camera moves to make the video as breathtaking as possible. For example, he moved the drone to right while panning the camera to the left to create a cinematic effect.
The video was produced through iMovie and accompanied by an the instrumental track "Perpetuum Mobile" by Penguin Cafe Orchestra. It also incorporated artificial fireworks sounds, downloaded from iTunes.
Cremer is a wildlife photographer based in Peru. Originally from Colorado, he said he has worked in the Peruvian Amazon in a place called Tambopata for the last five years, leading tourists and biologists on photographic expeditions deep in the jungle.
"The amazon is an amazing place and lots of people go there on vacations. If you are interested in visiting the amazon jungle I recommend these two places," Cremer wrote, referring to two Amazonian regions in Peru and Ecuador.
The photographer also holds the world record for taking the highest resolution photo of the famous Peruvian archaeological site and tourist attraction Machu Picchu.
Lima is the capital of Peru and the country's largest city. About one-third of its population lives in the city's metropolitan area.
