Drones have revolutionized photography, and that’s rarely more evident than with videos of the outdoors.

Case in point: YouTuber Sandro GH, a relative newcomer to the platform, uses his drone to incredible effect, showcasing the stunning beauty of mountains like K2. He’s also made videos about the controversial use of helicopters to shuttle climbers in the Himalayas, as well as slice-of-life stories from the unique individuals of alpine mountaineering.

For his latest, Sandro has delivered the goods with drone photography of all four camps on Everest and the summit.

“Filmed while shooting for the awesome Tonya Samoilova,” the YouTuber wrote of working with the first Ukrainian woman to summit the mountain twice. “Her father and brother joined the Ukrainian armed forces as the invasion started, may victory come soon,” he continued.
