Capturing Mountains in a Different Light

For as long as he can remember, Reuben Wu has been obsessed with mountains. He has dedicated his photography to capturing the splendor of the world’s highest peaks in new, mystical lights.

Enabled by Coors Light, Wu’s new project uses night drones to illuminate the ice blue walls of the Pastoruri Glacier in Peru, 16,000 feet high in the sky.

Taking breaks in between shots to catch his breath and warm his hands, Wu attempts to photograph his vision, painting the landscape with light from his drone, the stars and the moon.
