Enrico said: “Iceland is amazing for using drones thanks to a non-restrictive regulation (in comparison to the rest of Europe). There are also few people around and not many houses or roads, which are all factors that make a great photo.” Above: Explosion crater Viti (meaning ‘Hell’) in Krafla. It was formed in 1734 by an eruption of the Krafla volcano that lasted for five years.

Enrico, who used a DJI Phantom 3 drone, has encountered several difficulties while taking the aerial pictures. He said: “There was rain and strong winds, which made it often impossible to fly a drone: in Hveravellir for example I took the risk of flying with a quite strong wind and it was quite difficult even to walk!”

Mr Pescantini added: “Another amazing spot which gave me quite a ‘headache’ was Dettifoss waterfalls: the clouds were very low, and there was a mix of mist and rain all over the waterfalls. “But the opportunity to shot Dettifoss was too tempting so I risked taking a flight for a few minutes: luckily nothing bad happened, except for some moisture on the drone.” Above: Dettifoss Waterfall
