12 Of The Best Drone Photos Taken This Year

With the popularization of drone photography comes a whole new way of looking at the earth. Photographers and hobbyists alike can now send their cameras soaring above the ground to capture aerial views previously untapped.

The birds-eye perspective is perfect for capturing striking aerial landscapes.

In celebration of the new photography category, Dronestagram has hosted the International Drone Photography Contest to highlight the world's best drone photography. The contest has just entered its fourth year and the winning shots are everything you'd hope for–visually striking and utterly pulse-pounding.

"Drones are becoming an increasingly accessible way to get a new perspective on the world," Eric Dupin, CEO of Dronestagram says. "There literally are no physical limits as to where a shot can take place anymore."

The contest contains four categories– nature, people, urban, and creativity. Find more drone photo submissions on the contest website here.
