Recently, i was going through some of the best aerial photos on the internet on websites such as Dronestagram, a website where you can submit your aerial photos for the contest or browse through breath-taking photos clicked using a drone by various photographers from around the world. So, I thought of compiling some of the best aerial photos together and make a blog post on it.
Before we have a look at these awe-inspiring images, let’s have a read at how and when the first known aerial photo was clicked:
Did you know, the first ever aerial photograph was taken by French photographer and balloonist, Gaspar Felix Tournachon, known as “Nadar” in the year 1858. After 3 years of experimenting, he successfully produced the very first aerial photograph.
Drones have introduced us to a new and different form of photography, which allows us to see our beautiful world from an angle which couple of years back no one would have thought of.
Personally, I was always eager to see how the Taj Mahal looks like from the top angle, it’s view, it’s surrounding, everything. A big thanks to Amos Chapple, who beautifully clicks the Taj Mahal and many more iconic places using a drone.
Let’s have a look at some of the best aerial photos clicked using a drone:
