Zenith Nature begun when I bought a drone, but really got a kick because of the pandemic since for long periods people were forbid to cross city limits. Hovering above my home town parks it was a way to escape from the ordinary. I used the healing power of photography to counterbalance the loss of control that the pandemic cast upon my life. Upon all lives.
I concentrate on producing an image that is not immediately recognizable for what it is. Zenith perspective surely helps in that. Nonetheless I try to highlight on what makes nature so incredibly plural, also in a city park.
