Las Coloradas Mexico/ What you see here are huge salt evaporation ponds for sea salt extraction. Some of them show peculiar colors due to microorganisms in the water, like the pink lagoon. Note that in order for you to catch the ultra pink color, the water needs to be in direct sunlight, the best time to catch this really cool phenomenon is at noon on a clear day.
I shot this with my drone, and of course, it is best if you have a model to make the photo more interesting or simply add the human element. Who is the model I brought? Her name is Mercedes, without this shot wouldn’t be as cool, however, you don’t have to bring a model for this place to be epic. If I would have been alone, I would have asked someone there or simply used myself to give the place some perspective.
I edited this shot with my aerial presets. They are tastefully re-mastered.

If you want to visit these places, I highly recommend a guided tour. To go on your own is kind of an adventure and hard to find the cool spots.
Hurricane Irma left a bit of destruction behind. From a lot of trees all over the place to boats, I mean lots of boats. The Miami waters look like a Hollywood set from a Sci-fi movie.
I have visited a lot of marinas in the past couple days, and all of them have boats all over the place. Talking to the workers there were a lot more boats before as the owners and insurance companies have been showing up to salvage what is left of their vessels.
I shot these at a marina close to my house. There are so many boats here and these are some of the leftover damage. I shot all these with my Mavic Pro and I edited them with my DJI Lightroom Presets, the Coastal Preset to be exact.
Looking at these photos makes me a bit sad, what once was someone’s dream to have an incredible boat, is now just litter in the ocean… A reminder of the power mother nature carries.
The sky was on fire like a bomb went off in the distance. It was insane. Luckily I had my drone and I was able to get some really cool footage. I love days like this intense. The cloud formations were just perfect. I shot all these photos with my Mavic Pro and edited them with my new DJI Lightroom Presets. For having such a small sensor, the camera on the Mavic Pro works great.
Miami sunsets are always epic.
Here is a video giving you my top 10 drone photography tips. This is how I take all my drone images.
I shot these two images with my Mavic Pro. I must say every time I fly the little drone, I’m super impressed by it. The image quality is almost there, but with the help of my Dji Lightroom Presets, its the images are there.
I went to catch a sunrise this particular morning and after the sun came up, I pulled out the Mavic and had some fun.
Ok, not really, this is actually Monument Island located in the Miami Bay. I actually ride my paddle board here and it feels like a private island. Usually filled with boaters from all over Miami and the random paddle border that is looking to get away. I love this place it is quite cool because it is inaccessible by land. I used my Dji Lightroom Presets to edit these photos and a Mavic Pro to shoot them.
