Dronestagram’s Winning Photos Reveal Spectacular Aerial Views of the World #drone #droneday
Drones have brought the power of new and original perspectives to photography. Via My Modern Met:
For the fifth year, Dronestagram celebrates the best drone photography with its International Drone Photography Competition. Thousands of entries flooded in from around the globe, showing off the spectacular artistry of these skilled photographers. In the end, Zekedrone took home the top prize for his striking image titled Hungry Hippos.
Photographed during the photographer’s trip to Tanzania, the image is the perfect combination of composition, light, and color. His work certainly demonstrates the creative side of working with drones, something that is important to keep in mind as countries tighten regulations on their usage.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
