When the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve in the capital city of Lima, Peru, things get crazy. People shoot fireworks high into the sky from the streets and from the roots of buildings, creating a spectacular light show.
Photographer Jeff Cremer was in Lima this year and decided to use his camera drone to capture what the crazy fireworks display looks like from above. It “looks like the start of the air campaign in Iraq,” Cremer says.
“At around midnight I flew the drone over all the fireworks at an altitude of around 200m,” the photographer writes. “I wanted to fly lower but I could just picture someone getting lucky with a direct bottle rocket hit to the drone so I stayed up high.”
