Dronestagr.am is a worldwide, digital community of photographers who use drones (not those kinds) to take pictures ten to 400 feet high in the air, and capture some of the most unique views of nature and humans.

Because of the thousands of shots being posted on the site daily, Dronestagram decided to hold a competition every year of the best drone pictures from the last year, and they have now announced the top 20 of 2017.

Scroll down, and tell me you aren’t thinking about buying a drone on Amazon afterwards.
