The Hydrae Collection by Atelier Ambersand

The Hydrae collection is our second Atelier Ampersand collection and is inspired by rocky coastlines and washing waves.

With our DJI Mavic Pro drone, we were able to photograph some amazing parts of nature in Gran Canaria, Spain from a whole new perspective. The waves crashing into the rocks and washing back into the ocean create abstract marble-like shapes and the blue water & dark rocks contrast nicely with the white foam coming from the waves.
