Start 2018 on a High Note with This Stirring Video of the Manhattan Beach Pier

When a city filled with creatives take their drones out to play, good things happen

Commercial photographer Vincent Laforet was sort of messing around at the Manhattan Beach Pier with his drone on New Year’s Day last year when he grabbed video of a thing that happens every day day, that’s sort of mundane in a way, that is actually quite beautiful from the right angle, at the right time of day, when you stop to notice it: a flock of birds taking flight over the ocean.

If you’re curious about the technical details of the shoot, you can read about them here on the photographer’s blog.
