Disruptions, delivery services, death: the news about drones is far from positive. But in the right hands, a drone can capture beauty from an uncommon vantage point.
Dronestagram is a social network solely for aerial photographers. This is the fourth year that it has held a drone photography contest in partnership with National Geographic and the first year it has included "Creativity" as a category alongside "Nature", "People", and "Urban". Plucked from 8,000 submissions, the twelve winning photos take us around the world with striking views of France, Romania, Greenland, the United Arab Emirates, Russia, Spain, South Africa, the United States, and Vietnam.
