If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to view the things from above, like a bird’s view, you can always hop in a helicopter or get a window seat in an airplane. However, those options are way too expensive and it’s most unlikely you will get to see the city’s true beauty with all the pollution and clouds up in the air.
This is the reason, why some creative minds invented drones. Taking photos using drones are not that usual, but it’s still awesome. An online community named Dronestagram allow it’s users to upload and share photographs and videos captured by drone from around the world. For the first time, in 2014, they held Aerial photography Contest that appreciated around the world.
For its second edition, Dronestagram festival unveiled the best photographs captured by drones in 2015 from more than 5,000 submissions they received. All over the world, above the clouds, a turquoise sea or tropical islands, these pictures make us discover places of breathtaking beauty and memorable moments.
