One day I saw a picture taken from an airplane, showing the center of a city surrounded by a heavy fog exposing only the tops of buildings. Since that day, I had the desire to take a picture like that; but only of my town. One morning, a dense fog formed, very rare here, because I live in a fairly leveled area where it is sunny and hot almost all year round. That day, I had a job to do with the drone and therefore the equipment was already in my car. I drove my daughter to school and on my way to work I decided to try to take the picture. I had no idea how was up there, because the only thing I could see were clouds hiding the buildings. I did not know if there would be sun, or if the weather was completely cloudy as the day before. I chose the area of Maringa Cathedral, a symbol of the city, and because this monument was inspired by the creation of spaceships called Sputniks. (Source: Wikipedia) I flew the drone few meters up, making it disappear in the fog, and soon after, flew it back down because I could not fly it without visual contact. By accessing the camera's memory, I was amazed by the beautiful day above the clouds and to my surprise and delight, I was able to take the exactly picture I was looking for. The result is this….

  1. Awesome shot Ricardo. Hope you don’t mind a bit of CC, but for me, I would have pitched right slightly to centralize the spire between the two outside buildings in the background. Nevertheless, you took an awesome shot, and thanks for sharing. 🙂

  2. Hello Ricardo Matiello ~
    I am doing a Drone Pilot Intro Demo with about 6-20 photographers in the Minneapolis, MN USA area. I’d like to ask if I may show your shot “Above the mist, Maringá, Paraná, Brazil”, with your Credit line, as a good example of above the clouds type drone images. Let me know what you think.
    Thank You.
