While Clayco Corp. was constructing the Cubes at Glendale, a 335-acre industrial park in Glendale, Ariz., Paul Fries, photographer and owner of drone services firm UAVision LLC, Mesa, Ariz., documented the project’s progress. “I was the pilot that flew the monthly progress photos and mapping missions,” Fries says.
One day in October, Fries was in the midst of his monthly flight when weather conditions began creating a magnificent rainbow in the near distance.
“This was the last flight, and the mission was to capture images of each cube from multiple angles,” Fries explained in an entry, entitled Rainbows and Cubes, for ENR’s annual photo contest. “I had noticed that a large storm was forming, so I took the opportunity to capture the entire campus. This was the result.”
