About the shot :

This picture was taken a week before the Rolex Fastnet Race, where Edmond de Rothschild set a new multihull record. This is a drone wide angle shot taken just a few feet above the sea level. The boat is flying offshore the coast of Brittany at a speed of 35 knots. This is the kind of shots which would be tricky to take from a rib or a helicopter. Drones make more accessible. I remember I had this feeling of satisfaction and excitement when I realized I managed to be precisely where I wanted to press the shutter.

Camera :

DJI FC6310 (Phantom 4 advanced), 24mm, 100, f5.6 , 1/400
