With drone photography only taking off in the the last couple of years thanks to how easily available they have become, this was only the second annual Dronestagram festival and competition in which people around the world can submit their best drone photographs. It may only be in its second year, but this time there were over 5,000 submissions and now that the winners have been announced we get to enjoy the very best. As you would expect they're pretty epic.
You can see lots of other drone photographs over at the official website.
