For decades we thought we'd seen every type of photo imaginable – but the arrival of drones has changed aerial photography in a big way over the last couple of years. 

Dronestagram was set up to highlight some of the best photos taken in 2015 and the results have been absolutely outstanding. 

All these photos make us want to do is travel the world and see even more of this amazing planet we live on!

1st  Prize  Category  Places  Above The Mist  Maring  Paran  Brazil By  Ricardo  Matiello

Above the mist, Maringá, Paraná, Brazil

One day I saw a picture taken from an airplane, showing the center of a city surrounded by a heavy fog exposing only the tops of buildings. Since that day, I had the desire to take a picture like that; but only of my town. One morning, a dense fog formed, very rare here, because I live in a fairly leveled area where it is sunny and hot almost all year round. That day, I had a job to do with the drone and therefore the equipment was already in my car.

3rd  Prize  Category  Places  Tulip Fileds By  Anders@andersa Com

Between Sassenheim and Voorhout, The Netherlands

Multi colored tulip fields, a canal and men inspecting the fields for virus infected tulips, which the remove when found. The \”tulip mania\” area in Holland is a dream landscape for a drone pilot. I´ve seen aerial images of tulip fields before, but never anything shot from a drone. So I figured that it better get to it before someone else does! A friend of mine, Ulf Hansson (who is a tulip maniac and grows rare spieces from the 1600´s) did some detailed studies of Holland via Google earth in order to find the most interesting shapes and compositions in the landscape.
