This year the worlds first annual Drone photography contest has taken place. National geographic France and Dronestagram have collaborated together to create the contest, and both amateur and proffesional photographers have entered their images and footage.

All of these photos were taken by cameras on remote controlled drones, and the results are simply outstanding. Drones are allowing photographers to take photos that were once impossible to take.
