sebastianmzh

Every year photographers from all over the world compete in the annual drone photography competition organized by SkyPixel. The participants compete in two main categories, video and photography, and the winners receive over $12,000 worth of photography gear. This year German photographer Deryk Baumgärtner’s photo of the Saint Michael’s Mount won the grand prize in the photography category, and it’s not hard to see why – his photo will take your breath away.

In an interview with Bored Panda, Deryk said it was an unbelievable feeling to win the Grand Prize. The humble photographer said he did not even expect to make it to the top 100. Even though the photographer has been interested in aerial photography for many years, it was Deryk’s first time entering the SkyPixel competition.

Check out Deryk’s photo and the winners of other categories in the gallery below!
