Video: Drone Captures Stunning Aerial Images from South Africa
Eric Cheng released this short film showing the "beauty of Cape Town and its surrounding areas". And though he presents some beautiful landscape video, we're here for the shark shots and he didn't disappoint.
Eric scored some very nice images of sharptooth houndsharks, (aka spotted gully shark) cruising along the shore break near Cape Point in Table Mountain National Park.
And for the grand finale, the video closes out with footage from Seal Island featuring majestic great white sharks.
Although Eric provides shortcuts to the various footage, I'd highly recommend sitting back and enjoying the entire short video. It really is beautiful and very well edited.
