Pic Of The Day: Moscow’s Secretive Kremlin Photographed By A Drone

The Kremlin is known as Moscow’s closely guarded seat of power and the official residence of the Russian President. It’s also highly illegal to fly drones over it and take pictures.

That’s exactly what New Zealand photographer Amos Chapple was able to do last week.

“It was a commissioned shot (from a Russian company), but they made it clear I was on my own if I got caught,” Chapple wrote on Reddit. “Permissions for this kind of thing would be impossible now.”

“[The publisher] considered applying for permission, but told me it would probably be impossible so I went ahead without,” he told Australia’s News.com.au.
