The ever-increasing availability of drones for both professional and amateur use means that the video footage and still pictures from these gadgets are on the up too. We've taken a look at Dronestagram, a website showcasing drone shots from around the world, and selected some of our favourites.
Do you take your own drone shots? Have you seen anything better? Let us know in the comments section below.
We're starting off with a corker, and we think you'll agree that this shot taken in Les Contamines-Montjoie, France, is something worth talking about.
This shot of a mountain biker in Les Contamines, Montjoie, is really cool. This one was taken on a DJI Phantom with a GoPro Hero 3.
BMX riders are getting involved too, and who doesn't love a sunset picture? Taken near Paris, these guys know how to get a great shot.
We love this – flatland BMX on Kemeri Marsh Trails, Latvia. Cool!
It's not just MTB riders who are all over Dronestagram. Roadies are getting into it too, and when you see this kind of image from Corralejo, Fuerteventura, Spain it really shows the popularity of road sportives.
Shots like this make us want to pack up and start working our way through a bucket list of trails, from Argentière, Chamonix. So, who's coming with?
We know the locations are different – as this picture was taken in Le Môle, France – but you'd be forgiven for thinking it was the summit from the trails above. Seriously though, about that bucket list?
Looking at the space that rider has to himself is insane, what a feeling of being free, riding along with the power lines. Taken in Orland Park, Illinois with a GoPro Hero 3.
Cyclocross training isn't an easy task and this drone video from Doetinchem, Netherlands, shows us why.
More cyclocross action and this from the VACX Finals in Goochland, Virginia, is pretty cool.
Now this is where we want to go! Where underground waters have flooded a quarry and an abandoned mine, an incredible downhill playground has formed! Take us to Estonia now!
Another shot from the cyclocross Vacx Finals Goochland, Virgina. These guys love it, and we have to admit – so do we!
