Drone Awards 2018: Photographer of the year winners – newsweek.com

From revealing hidden patterns in the landscape to showing how tiny and fragile the human figure really is, these are the most beautiful drone photos of the year.

This year’s grand prize winner is Florian Ledoux from France, who captured a polar bear leaping between two masses of ice in Nunavut in Northern Canada.

Other categories in the competition included nature, people, sport and wildlife. Subjects ranged from sharks, a warehouse fire, and a pilgrimage, demonstrating the enormous versatility of drone photography.
