15 outstanding photos from a bird’s-eye view

High-altitude photography is becoming more popular these days. Photographers take pictures from quadrocopters, helicopters, satellites, and even paragliders to get the most unusual and stunning shots. This new angle of things helps us look at our world in a different way and inspires us to make more discoveries every day.
