Drone Discovers Stunning Glacier Scene Hidden In The Himalayas


As engineers keep on inventing new technology, our lives will keep on getting revolutionized. The moment drones were invented, aerial photography reached a new peak.

Drones give us the chance to take spectacular photos from a bird’s-eye view. Whether its inaccessible terrains, vast areas, landscapes, or distant horizons, we can bring the drones anywhere to take a picture or video. Additionally, drones are so easy to use, even children can handle them.

One of the most scenic places in the world is the Himalayan mountain range. With more than 2,400 km of land and water, the vast range of mountains contains lots of diverse sceneries, from glaciers, peaks, waterfalls, rivers, etc.

The mountain range is the world’s third-biggest snow and ice deposit. More than 15,000 glaciers are located in the range of mountains and all of them are diverse. Most of these glaciers are not even discovered yet, such as the one that was just discovered with the help of drones.

Experts claim that drones can be a huge help in understanding the changes in glaciers and watch them melt. Drones are able to collect and document large geographical areas. Additionally, they will give a much higher resolution of the photos made compared to images made from the satellite.

Also, drones can access dangerous landscapes which are inaccessible to the human, thus, allowing people to map and track natural risks and hazards.

One photographer used such a drone to take pictures in the vast Himalayas mountains and he found a hidden natural treasure.

David Kaszlikowski, a renowned Polish photographer with lots of awards in his name, specializes in mountain photography. His work consists of aerial and underwater photography, usually using drones.

Kaszlikowski was searching to find a perfect location to shoot his documentary, K2 Touching the Sky, and used his DJI Phantom Drone to search the area. He flew the drone above K2 Mountain, second-highest peak in the world.

While looking for his ideal place, he passed through Concordia, the area below the mountain where the Baltoro and Godwin-Austen glaciers meet, he spotted something incredible. Kaszlikowski saw another new glacier which was surreal to him. This glacier was surrounded by a 65-feet wide water pool and it’s completely spectacular.

Kaszlikowski claimed that the glacier was changing its form day by day. He claims that its “quite obvious nobody will photograph it again like me; nobody will see it the same way the next season.” 

The sight that Kaszlikowski witnessed was a completely unbelievable and spectacular sight.

Both Kaszlikowski and a guide trekked to the location during nighttime so that they could capture its true beauty.

The photographer used a Canon 5D Mark III on a tripod with a 30-second exposure. He had the shutter open and used a LED to add the lighting for the photograph. The result became something remarkable and breathtaking as you can see for yourself.

Kaszlikowski was spellbound and delighted of what he had accomplished.

He stated that the usual pictures that he takes are of the beautiful peaks in the area. However, due to the over-representation of them, he tried to make something out of the ordinary.

Kaszlikowski wants all of the photographers in the world to follow their intuition and keep their own style, rather than copying someone else’s.

“Today, with digital and access to various advanced tools, it’s much easier to get decent results. But one thing never changes: You have to follow your vision.”
