Ever wanted to fly among thousands of pink-footed geese? Technology hasn’t taken us (quite) there yet, but these photos are the next best thing. The winners of the Drone Photo Awards 2021 have been announced, with Terje Kolaas’s shot of the birds above snow-covered ground taking the top prize.
The aerial photographs don’t just take in natural wonders, though. Md Tanveer Hassan Rohan’s image shows a colourful harbour in Bangladesh from above. During the pandemic, people used the boats to travel on the River Buriganga – creating a mismatched pattern of water and transport. It’s lovely stuff. Here are some of our other favourites:
Like this cloud of geese.
This turtle heading back to the sea.
This atmospheric ocean scene.
This dramatic Moscow cityscape.
