Beautiful drone footage shows the crystal clear waters of the French Riviera

A beautiful new video has been released that features spectacular views of the crystal blue waters of the French Riviera, captured by a drone from above.

 

The video comes from DroningDutchman, an enthusiast who started sharing videos and pictures on his YouTube and Instagram profiles last year. “I live in the Netherlands where drones are becoming more popular every day. I bought a basic model last year and made some movies. I ended up liking it so much that I upgraded to an advanced drone not long after,” he told Lonely Planet News.

“It was shot during my summer holiday to France in September. Having travelled there once before, I know about the beautiful surroundings of the Riviera and wanted to capture them by drone. Shots were taken around the areas of Saint Raphael and Frejus by the coast.”

After starting to make drone videos last year, DroningDutchman has amassed 6000 followers on his Instagram account.
