30 Amazing Photos Taken By Drones

2014 was the year of the drone. Here are some of the most amazing images our new friend has given us.

In a lot of ways you could call 2014 the year of the drone. Back in the mists of ancient 2013 no one could afford a drone, but nowadays everyone’s got one in their back pocket. I don’t know whether that’s a particularly awesome thing or not but it’s given us some nice videos to watch which is something I guess.

We’ve seen Chernobyl from the eye-line of a drone, the first ever drone porn movie and a kangaroo smashing a drone out of the sky. And that’s just the start.

Below is a compilation of some of the most impressive drone based photos of last year. It’s all good. Enjoy:

1) Sofia, Bulgaria

3) Bali Barat National Park, Indonesia

It looks to me like that bird of prey might be ready to strike. We’ve seen that type of action before. I’m not sure these predators of the sky are as keen on drones as the rest of us.

4) Karakorum, Pakistan

The otherworldly looking Baltoro Glacier. Nippy but nice.

5) Bourtange, Holland

Bourtange, in eastern Netherlands, has for some reason been built in the shape of a star. I would be jealous but I’m assuming it floods regularly.

30) Varazze, Italy

I’d imagine that a Santa outfit would be pretty heavy when it was soaked in sea water. It’s not as mental as surfing in a Siberian snow storm though.
