Vermont’s spectacular autumn foliage is starring in a stunning new drone video, capturing the region as you’ve never seen it before.This incredible video, which was shot by Matt Benedetto from New York, allows viewers an aerial view of the New England gem during its most colourful season, through the lens of a drone.The 25-year-old starts the video off close to his face before releasing the device and steadily reversing it hundreds of feet above the ground.
Atop the hills, the drone zooms out from Matt, who posted the video on Vimeo at the weekend, before he slowly disappears among the burgundy, rust and moss coloured trees.The steady landscape shots once airborne, are spectacular – revealing glistening lakes and thousands of trees and greenery.Filmed on a DJI Inspire I quadcopter, which costs around £2,500, the aerial footage reveals Vermont’s true beauty.
The drone begins to fly away from the 25-year-old and he becomes less visible as the foliage comes into view
By this point in the clip, which was shot with a £2,500 drone, Matt has completely disappeared from viewThe latest video is one of many from Mr Benedetto – who has mastered the ‘drone selfie’.In October last year, he released a breathtaking video, shot in an area renowned for its natural beauty.
On cliffs at North Beach in Burlington, Vermont, US, the then 24-year-old stood with the control in his hand, facing the drone cam, with it positioned on the edge of a rock-face.Soaring into the sky above, the quality and stability of the recording is incredible – and reveals how the colours of the forest contrast dramatically with the dark blue waters of Lake Champlain.
