Drones usage has sky-rocketed worldwide in the last 12 months – both personally and commercially. Many industries have benefitted from using drones to improve all areas of their business. Farmers, for example, have been using drones to get a much better ‘bird’s-eye’ view of their fields – and even feed crops in some cutting-edge cases.
In another sector, construction workers have been profiting from a much higher perspective on their work by using a drone. The common denominator here is: things look completely different from a ‘bird’s-eye’ point of view! This ‘bird’s eye’ view has revolutionised both videography and photography, they’re now able to get some incredible angles and take some absolutely breathtaking shots, particularly from the heights drones can reach! Here are some of the very best drone photography shots taken throughout the world in 2016…
