Dronestagram, the first social network dedicated to aerial photography, has selected its
top 20 aerial images from the thousands of stunning drone photos submitted in 2017. Often described as "Instagram for drones", Dronestagram allows hobbyists to share their geotagged aerial photos.
IBTimes UK publishes the top 20 images. You can see more beautiful aerial photos and videos captured by drones on the Dronestagram website.
