Beach Weddings & Town Carnivals: The Best Aerial Images of Summer 2018

Boat in Hawaiian Waters

Summer may be over, and the leaves may be changing colors throughout much of North America, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy some sun and scenery just a little bit longer.

Each year, EagleView captures millions of images all over North America and beyond. And while some of these images end up in our yearly calendar, others we share here on the blog.

Here, in no particular order, are our favorite images from the summer 2018 capture season:

harbor in Lincoln City, Oregon

Every summer, boating is a popular activity throughout many regions. (Pictured: the harbor in Lincoln City, Oregon.)

blue Hawaiian waters

If you look closely, you can see a boat in the upper-left on these clear blue Hawaiian waters. The perfect vacation spot, if you ask us!

waterway in Wisconsin

Did you take any vacations this year? We also wouldn’t mind sailing on this winding waterway in Wisconsin…

… Or traversing this river through the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo in Alberta, perhaps…

Wood Buffalo

… Or maybe even drifting calmly on this serene-looking lake, also in Wood Buffalo.

Wood Buffalo

If international travel is more your speed, the Maid of the Mist, seen here on the left, is a Niagara Falls boat tour that takes passengers behind the massive Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side of the border.

San Juan Mountains

There’s always mountain-climbing, a crowd favorite. Once known for gold and silver mining, the San Juan Mountains in San Miguel County, Colorado, are home to Tomboy, one of the state’s many ghost towns.

Wilmington, North Carolina

Was a destination wedding on your itinerary this season? Congratulations to this happy couple getting married on the shores of Wilmington, North Carolina!


Didn’t go on a vacation this summer? That’s okay! You may have had a carnival right in your hometown to explore. (Seen here is the 2018 Kingston Days Celebration in New Hampshire.)
