Every year, SkyPixel gets inundated with incredible aerial drone shots from people from all over the world. Unlike conventional photography, aerial photography involves taking photos of something eye-catching from an elevated position. To get the perfect shot, most people use a chopper, balloons, kites, or drones.
The images on this list were SkyPixel 2018 winners. Some of them were nominees, but they’re winners in our eyes and you’ll certainly agree with us once you take a look at their incredible shots. A lot of these images will bend your perception of reality and allow you to see the world in a radically different way.This red train passing through the snowy mountains in Switzerland will take your breath away.
