Extraordinary Winners of the 2015 Drone Aerial Photography Contest

Consecutively for the second year, Dronestagram and National Geographic worked together as a team to host the 2015 Drone Aerial Photography Contest. It invited 5000 participants from all over the world and it included professional photographers, drone experts and people passionate about drones. The list of winners was released recently. Scroll down to look at the amazing photos they have captured. When photographs are captured from drones, it gives a new angle and depicts the beauty in a more fascinating way. The views that are captured by drones are never visible to the human eye when they are looking straight from the ground level. The huge buildings appear as if they are tiny building blocks, the open and vast plantations look like paintings and the cattle appears as if they are dwarfed.   The sponsors for this contest were National Geographic, Kodak, Parrot, and Go Pro. Also, the top entries that bag prizes will feature in the French edition of National Geographic.
