Firefight Films shot this impressive footage at Alaska’s Mendenhall Glacier. Their DJI Phantom ducked, dodged, dipped, dived and dodged its way through the ice caves of the glacier to capture some hidden beauty that can only have been formed by centuries of glacial erosion.
The video looks like something out of a Discovery channel documentary.
