In our ongoing series called Weekly Escape, we aim to transport you from your desk to an incredible place in 2 minutes or less. This week, we head to Europe with Vadim Sherbakov, who taught himself how to shoot aerial photos and videos with a drone over the course of four months while traveling from Scotland to Russia. Sherbakok returned home with more than 140 gigabytes of aerial footage, which he used to compile this breathtaking video, In the Air. You can follow Sherbakok on Facebook here and on Instagram here.
