Here are the best drone photos of 2017, according to Dronestagram

Dronestagram just announced the winners of its fourth annual drone photo contest in partnership with National Geographic, and the images are more stunning than ever.

There were three photo categories: nature, urban and people, and the contest received thousands of entries from professional and amateur photographers around the world. The contest also announced a bonus round of winners in what they dubbed the “creative category.”

See the winners from the 2016 Dronestagram Photography Contest here.

Judges included National Geographic Deputy Director Patrick Witty and Photo editor Jeff Heimsath.

The winners played with shadows, like in Luke MaximoBell’s “Two Moo,” and played with light and color in Alexeygo’s “Dawn on Mercury Tower.” My personal favorite? “Waterlily” by helios1412.
