Twenty-year-old Gabriel Scanu from Australia uses drones to capture beautiful aerial shots.

Showcasing the beauty of Australia’s coastline and now travelling regularly, Scanu’s photographs depict the gorgeous contrasts where land meets the ocean.

“The thing I love most about drone photography is the fact that you can capture scenes from a perspective that they are never usually viewed from,” Scanu told Wired.

In an interview with From Where I Drone, Scanu revealed that his father Viv, a cinematographer, introduced him to the art capturing real life on film when he was 12-years-old. The photographer recently returned from a trip to the United States where he captured some instantly recognisable landmarks from almost abstracted vantage points.
