20-year-old drone photographer turns coastline into stunning art

Throw away your holiday snaps and deactivate your aspirational Pinterest boards, because Australian man Gabriel Scanu has shut down the photography game.

The 20-year old uses drones to capture some of the most aerial photographs your eyes have ever clapped upon.

Showcasing the beauty of Australia's coastline and now traveling regularly, Scanu's photographs depict the gorgeous contrasts where land meets the ocean.

"The thing I love most about drone photography is the fact that you can capture scenes from a perspective that they are never usually viewed from," Scanu told Wired.

Walking the plank

Scenic composition is in the photographer's DNA, with Scanu telling From Where I Drone that his father Viv, a cinematographer, introduced him to the art capturing real life on film, all at the tender age of 12.

The photographer recently returned from a trip to the United States where he captured some instantly recognizable landmarks from almost abstracted vantage points.

It's all a bit jaw-dropping, a little vertigo-inducing and entirely beautiful.

With the Australian summer fast approaching, keep your eyes glues to Scanu's Instagram and YouTube any time you need a quick burst of awe.
