 Drone photography has taken the art world by storm in the last few years, but 2016 was clearly the greatest year in its history. The images taken from hundreds of feet in the air offer a perspective that most of us can only very rarely enjoy. And because there are so many professional and amateur drone photographers, the range of subjects is incredibly vast. SkyPixel received an eye-watering 27,000 entrants to its recent competition, of which here are the 25 photographs that really stood out. Open your eyes for a beautiful visual feast!
