DroneRise – Best of winter Baikal Lake ice captured by drone

Good morning, today’s short film shows some of the best footage you could capture by drone from Baikal Lake. The lake is located in Russia and is the largest freshwater lake in the world measured by volume. As you will see in the video, Baikal Lake and the surrounding area provide ample opportunity to capture beautiful winter landscapes.

For the headlines, you may have missed, we have a firmware update for the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0. And, DJI just announced their latest version of their geofencing software, GEO 2.0. An article from the Economist about deliveries by drone in Iceland. And a deal on the DJI Mavic Pro Alpine White Edition. Enjoy!

Today’s video of Baikal Lake

Today’s drone video is a special one. It is titled: “Best of winter Baikal Lake ice from above.” The footage that ‘Alex Drone’ has captured and edited into this short film is simply stunning. Here’s what he had to say about the footage:

“Enjoy beautiful winter trip to frozen Baikal Lake, Olkhon and Irkutsk city. See transparent, sparkling and cracking blue ice of [the] largest freshwater lake. Ride on fast hovercrafts Khivus boats that fly above water and ice. Explore deep caves icicles and high snow rocks of Olkhon Island. Join real Shaman mystic performance, which changed the weather condition.”

I would say, grab a coffee and watch this one. It is a good one!
