Seeing the world from a new perspective is not only wildly alluring, but an eye-opening experience. Drones have become more popular recently and that means some talented people have put them to good use (whilst others use them to close down airports). Armed with a camera and a spirit of adventure, here's Dronestagram's best images from the past year.

Dronestagram is an online community for sharing photographs captured by drone. Looking through their website is like being a bird for a day. What might look expected or normal to us is entirely different and often incredible from an aerial view. In nature there are patterns everywhere, mathematical occurrences that give order to the seemingly chaotic nature of the world.


It's a fascinating proposition that something isn't as it seems. This is exactly what drone photography does. It sates our innate desire to learn and to know. It's a new plane of experience for us to explore. Curvilinear and gridiron streets are no longer just houses, but man-made jigsaws where people live. A herd of animals aren't just gathering by a waterhole but are interlocked in an intriguing patter, similar to the geometry of flora.


Most comfortable seeing things from the ground, a drone is a safe way for people to understand their scale in an endless environ. Its spike in popularity first looked like a trend, but is now clearly here to stay. In celebration of a vintage year for drone photography, the Dronestagram people have chosen their favourites and the result is as collection of images that offer timeless gifts to us: perspective, beauty and experience. The bar has been set high for this coming year and the increasing quality of camera available, plus the broadening horizons of possibilities means that this could be a new genre of photography, rather than just a fresh way of seeing of interacting with old ones.
