STOCK IMAGES, LANDSCAPE, TRAVEL, DRONE PHOTOGRAPHY BY SCOTT MASTERTON

Chornobyl, Pripyat, Kyiv.

In the Fall of 2021 along with a group of 14 other intrepid Photographers and Drone Pilots we ventured into the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone for some fun and photography. A week that will live long in our memories!

Pripyat (abandoned) and Chornobyl (partially abandoned) are cities in the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone, situated in northern Ukraine, about 90 kilometres (60 mi) north of Kyiv.

The cities were abandoned following the Chornobyl Nuclear Disaster in 1986. It is now considered relatively safe to visit Pripyat and its surroundings, unless you go with the guys I went with :o)

We also visited the ruins of some stately homes left over from the Russian Revolution, some abandoned villages near Chornobyl, as well as spending some time in Kyiv.
