Stunning Photos Captured by Drones Will Change Your Perspective of these Popular Destinations

,

 

Have you ever been curious as to what the world would look like from a birds point of view?  Of course, you can ride a helicopter however, that can be expensive. Enter the latest trend of drones …an unmanned remote controlled aircraft that can be used to take photos several feet above the ground.  However, not all cameras are built the same, thus the group Dronestagram was formed.

Dronestagram is a team of creative photographers who use drones to capture awesome shots. This online community allows users to upload and share breathtaking photos and videos taken by drones from different parts of the world. In 2014, they held Aerial Photography Contest for the first time, which aims to extract all the stunning shots taken by people from all around the world.

This year the group held the Dronestagram Festival which collected nearly 5,000 entries to reveal the best photos of 2015 using drones. Below are some of these awesome photos.
