Before leaving, he researched the Mauritian aviation regulations on the internet to make sure that a) drone use was permitted, and b) he was familiar with any restrictions on where drones could be flown. 
 
Throughout his week of exploring, the drone provided stunning perspectives on the landscape of the island - views normally reserved for those fortunate enough to have feathers, or those who hold a private or commercial pilot's licence!

All the images you see in this post were taken in RAW image format and were individually post-processed in Adobe Lightroom. Some images are the result of stitching multiple images together - increasing not only the field-of-view of the final image, but also increasing its resolution - which is handy as some of these images are destined for large canvases! 
 
The continued evolution of battery, camera and image-recognition technology is giving the general public access to increasingly sophisticated drones which are lightweight, highly portable, easy to fly, and can provide rock-stable ultra-high-definition video footage and images of stunning clarity. 
 
Despite the very small minority of irresponsible users (who unfortunately provide the source for all the negative news stories surrounding drone use in the media), the vast majority of drone users fly responsibly and are enjoying the ability to see our beautiful planet from a truly unique birds-eye perspective.
