The Best of Drone Photography in 2015

Over the past few years, the drone has truly been a transcending device in photography and beyond. They give us a different, unique perspective of the world. The best drone photos of 2015 show us why they have grown so rapidly in popularity. Dronestagram, a site dedicated to drone enthusiasts, display their best photos of 2015. 

"Drones are becoming an increasingly accessible way to get a new perspective on the world," Eric Dupin, CEO of Dronestagram. "There literally are no physical limits as to where a shot can take place anymore."

The amount of drone users continues to grow going into 2016. The Consumer Electronics Association says about 700,000 drones are expected to ship in the U.S. this year, 63 percent more than last year. Even with the regulations put in place for 2016, those numbers are still expected to grow.

Here are some of the best drone photos via Dronestagram:

Yes, the camels! It is the one photo, that elevates (no pun intended) drone photography to another level, because it shows that a photographer has been using his mind creatively.
(But the top one (green field) is also very good.)

Agree with both of you guys, the camel one definitely stood out to me.

The camels are captivating indeed. But to be fair... it's been done before by National Geographic photographer George Steinmetz.
