Photog Catches Illegal Drone Over Hawaiian Volcano
” Photographer and filmmaker Andrew Studer recently photographed something stupid and illegal: someone flying a drone right next to a lava spout in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Fortunately for us, the final shot is just… incredible.”
” Andrew and we editors here at PetaPixel both hesitated before publishing this. We don’t want the sharing of this photo to be interpreted, in any way, as encouragement to do something stupid and likely illegal (we’re kind of against that). So we are sharing this amazing shot with two very bold disclaimers from Andrew:
1. Flying drones in national parks (with only a few exceptions) is illegal.
2. I only posted the photo to highlight the scale of the volcano not start a drone debate.”
