Drones are the most interesting technology of the future innovation. These days drones are employed everywhere for various reasons. Of those, photography is where drones are implemented in a spectacular way to take aerial shots.
While we are looking for some interesting stuff around the internet then, we found Amos Chapple’s photography, and were stunned seeing the way, how they are taken. We wanted to share some of his clicks and you can check out more on his
site. The Taj Mahal and its gardens as the day’s first tourists trickle through the gates. Saint Petersburg’s Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood during a squally autumn morning. The church marks the spot where the reformist Tsar Alexander II was assassinated; the patch of the cobbles on which he lay dying is preserved inside the church. The neatly arranged suburbs around Sagrada Familia. Octagonal city blocks allow for the light, spacious street corners which make al fresco beer & tapas in Barcelona such a delight. Clouds swirl through the pillars of Sagrat Cor Church, high on a hill above Barcelona. Twenty minutes later a thunderstorm hit the city. Buda castle on August 20, 2014. The barge in the center of the Danube is loaded with fireworks, launched later that night to celebrate Hungary’s national day. The star fort at Bourtange. Three centuries after the last cannonball was fired in anger at the fort, it now serves as a museum and center of a sleepy farming village in eastern Holland. The low, thick walls were designed to offset the pounding force of cannon fire. The Vittoria Light, overlooking the Gulf of Trieste at sunset. Known to the locals as ‘Hill 3’ this knoll jutting above Mumbai’s northern slums is no more valuable than the land below; running water, which the hill lacks, is far more valued than any view. Jama Masjid, the heart of Islam in India. The red sandstone structure was built under the orders of the Shah Jahan, the same Emperor who commissioned the Taj Mahal. The Lotus Temple dotted with pigeons at sunrise. Designed by an Iranian exile, the building serves as the center of the Bahai’i faith in Delhi. The Peter & Paul Fortress, Saint Petersburg’s founding point. At the time of the fort’s construction, the islands of St. Petersburg were populated only by a ragtag collection of fishermen’s huts. The area was deemed “too wild, too wet, too unhealthy” for human habitation, the equivalent of founding a capital city in the upper reaches of Hudson Bay. Saints Peter & Paul Cathedral rising through winter mist. Saint Petersburg’s Hermitage Pavilion wreathed in dawn mist. The little whipped cream palace was famous for parties where mechanical tables laden with food rose from beneath the floorboards Hotel Ukraina lit up at dusk. The spiky skyline of Istanbul as a freighter sails for the Sea of Marmara. The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. The Mtkvari River winding through Tbilisi, Georgia’s elegant capital. The Palace at Petergof, perched on a bluff overlooking the sea some 19 miles from central Saint Petersburg. Worker and Kolkhoz Woman striding into the future that was. Built for the Soviet pavilion at the 1937 World’s Fair in Paris, the steel masterwork now stands in the suburbs of northern Moscow. Two wrestlers practicing the ancient Indian sport of Kushti in a pit they had hacked into the ground two hours earlier. The Katskhi Pillar in Georgia, where a hermit has lived for the past twenty years to be “closer to god.” The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour at sunrise. The Admiralty shipyard in Saint Petersburg, Russia, headquarters of the Russian Navy. A ruined college in Gali, Abkhazia, near the “border” with Georgia, where ethnic Georgians made up 96% of the region’s pre-war population. Most fled, or were driven out of their homes after the war. Today Gali is a twilight zone of empty buildings and overgrown farmland. Paris’ Sacré-Cœur glowing in a hazy sunrise.
