Most of the beautiful sights of Mother Earth are not visible to the human eye. They are either hidden in deep oceans or far-away glaciers. However, thanks to modern technology, we have come to a position where we have been given the chance to observe these breath-taking sights through camera lenses. Particularly, by using drones, now photographers have become successful in capturing bird-view photographs which were earlier only visible to birds and were hidden from the human eye.
Among some stunning locations which are so much rich in natural beauty but not quite possible for humans to see, the Himalaya mountain range ranks the first place. Himalaya inherits many mysterious stories and legends and the top layer of the mountain is covered with icy glaciers. It covers around 2,400 km of land and water and the mountain range is so much rich with biodiversity.
Even though you may not have heard much about the glaciers in Himalaya, it is the third-biggest ice and snow deposit in the world and there are around 15,000 glaciers here. According to explorers, some of these glaciers have not even been discovered yet and it is another thing which increases the mystery of the mountain.
However, with the help of a drone, a photographer recently succeeded in discovering hidden glacier in Himalaya.
David Kaszlikowski is a famous photographer who has won several awards for his works and he is a specialist in mountain photography. He also has underwater and aerial photography skills (piloting multi-copters) and was always fascinated by the Himalaya mountain range. He was looking for an ideal location for his documentary, K2 Touching the sky. David sent his DJI Phantom Drone to investigate the area and then he set it up and sent it above the K2 mountain range, which is the second-highest peak in the world.
Near Concordia, the area below the mountain, they found two glaciers, Baltoro and Godwin-Austen, and then he saw a new, surreal one which was surrounded by a 65-feet wide pool of water.
Speaking to us he said that,
“The place was special, making a very clean graphic frame. It was disappearing, melting, changing its form every day. It was quite obvious nobody will photograph it again like me; nobody will see it the same way the next season.”
