Photographer Reuben Wu recently traveled to Pastoruri, one of the few glaciers left in tropical South America, and photographed it with lighting from an LED drone. The trip was part of the filming for a Great Big Story video series titled “Made From Mountains,” and involved research, scouting, and treacherous travel to safely reach the glacier.
“With this series, I felt like this was an attempt to document an endangered landscape which may not exist in a decade.”
The extreme temperatures caused Wu to lose sensation in his fingers, making it difficult to fly his light drone and operate his camera. Both his camera and drone battery life was also significantly reduced by the cold.
