Breathtakingly Beautiful Aerial Photos

Aerial photography has not always been what it is now. It was hard to take a photo from above, photographers had to ride a hot air balloon and take a shot of the view. The setup inside the balloon itself required much attention, as there had to be a dark area to cater to the lack of features of early cameras. While it’s now considered a mere hobby by some, early aerial photography was used as a part of mapmaking and surveying and was in no way a mean feat.

Decades later, we’ve gone from riding hot air balloons and using kites and rockets to sending an unmanned vehicle aloft to take high-quality photos. The advancements in photographic technology have made the task way easier. All we have to do now is set a drone loose, launch it into the sky, and let it handle the job.

And the result? Aerial shots that capture the world’s scenic places, a view we would have never seen should we have chosen to have our lenses stay on the ground forever.
