Pueblo artist Armando Vegas is capturing the region from drones.

“The world looks so beautiful and peaceful from up there,” Vegas told PULP. “It’s a step outside of reality to look in at it in a completely different view.”

Vegas has been using drones for the last year to take videos and photos from high above the streets of Pueblo, but he’s been photographing and filming since 2004 when he was a soldier in Iraq.

He’s captured everything from Lake Pueblo State Park to Bessemer. You can find more of his drone footage on instagram: @mondovcolo
