Scary Images Captured By Drones


Don’t Look Down

Drones are popular toys nowadays. Being able to fly a camera around allows us to take interesting pictures and amazing footage. But what happens when you record something that terrifies you? Or something that you just can’t explain? Well, you should share it with others so that they can also see. We’ve collected tens of just such images – awe-inspiring sights that would never have been seen if it wasn’t for the flying camera. Try not to get too scared!

Don’t Look Down

Scared of heights? This is the place to be. Tianmen Mountain, located in the Hunan Province of China, is around 5,000 feet high, and has a temple at the summit. But how can you get there? Well there is a cablecar, which is nerve-racking in itself.

Don’t Look Down

But if you’re really brave, you’ll walk. The paths you see in the picture were first built with wooden planks – now, sections are made from glass so that visitors can look down.

Mistress Of The Ocean

One day, a drone was flying over the sea, minding its own business. Maybe it was looking for pictures of exotic fish. But what it found was something bizarre and terrifying.

Mistress Of The Ocean

The drone captures an image of a shark-maiden of Atlantis. She appears to be relaxing, enjoying a day in the sun. But once she notices the drone, you can be sure that she won’t be letting it fly away. No siree bob.

Just A Relaxing Float

Hammerhead sharks are uniquely-shaped carnivorous fish. You can see how they got their name. They are interesting creatures – for example, they are known to swim in groups of up to one hundred. Apart from at night.

Just A Relaxing Float

At night, they go out hunting, alone. Their typical diet is mainly fish-based because they live in the sea. But we’re sure that they wouldn’t turn their hammer-noses up at a morsel of bikini-clad tourist were it served up to them on a floating platter.

Daredevil

Look at this crazy person. Doesn’t he know that he could fall? Yes he has a rope, but you know what’s even more secure than climbing with a rope? Staying on the ground where it’s safe!

Daredevil

This terrifying cliff-face is located in Denmark, and it is a popular one with professional climbers. Why can’t they just stay at home and read a nice book? This man is giving us an anxiety attack.

Mystery Solved

Here we see an aerial picture of a lake, and there appears to be a submerged car. The story behind this picture is an unpleasant one. It belonged to a 40-year old man from Florida who went missing in 1997.

Mystery Solved

He had phoned his girlfriend to tell her that he would be home soon, but never arrived. He was only found thanks to this picture, taken 22 years later. Nobody knows how this accident happened.

Don’t Run Backwards

Fancy a game of tennis 1,000 feet up? Let’s hope you have a good aim, cos you won’t be getting any lost balls back anytime soon. This court is situated on a helipad at the top of Burj al Arab in Dubai.

Don’t Run Backwards

Imagine being in a boat, when suddenly a tennis ball falls onto the deck from up in the sky. How high would it bounce? Well the terminal velocity of a tennis ball is approximately 100 kph, and a professional player serves at around 150 kph.

At Least There’s No Queue

Pripyat, Ukraine. This city was evacuated in 1986 following the disastrous explosion at the  Chernobyl nuclear power plant. People were told to pack light, because they would be allowed back to collect their belongings. That was not true.

At Least There’s No Queue

They were never allowed back, and nobody has been allowed to live there since. What’s left is a spooky ghost town. As we see from this image taken by a drone, it is a chilling place. You’re allowed to visit, but not for very long.

Behold My Power

A demigod stands atop a church. He has just finished laying waste to a city full of sinners, and takes a moment to admire his work. He stands atop a church so that he won’t get smoke in his eyes.

Behold My Power

Or at least, so this scene appears. In actuality, this is a statue on top of a church in a foggy city in Spain. The Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor is a beautiful landmark in the city of Barcelona, and well worth a visit.

There’s A Starman

A spaceman, recently arrived on earth, gazes into a pool of lava. What is he going to do next? Does he feel the heat? Does it hurt him? Is it right to be using male pronouns when we don’t even know the first thing about this creature?

There’s A Starman

No, this is actually a human scientist studying an active volcano. The silvery suit protects the person inside from the extreme heat. We still don’t know if it’s a he or she though.

Fee Fi Fo Fum

A giant child or a tiny man? Either way, this is a creepy picture. The child only needs to inhale sharply and the man will become lodged in her nose. How can he be so relaxed when he is just moments away from a sticky end?

Fee Fi Fo Fum

The man is Saype, an artist, who created a giant fresco using biodegradable paints. The full picture depicts a girl dropping a paper boat into a lake.

River Of Blood

One man was taking his drone for a spin when he saw a popular river in his area overran by thick red liquid. This definitely sounds like something out of a horror movie. Fearing that the source could be toxic or the result of some disturbing crime, the man called up the city hall to make a complaint about the red liquid.

River Of Blood

They immediately went to inspect the site and find out the source of the red liquid. As it turned out, there was a slaughterhouse not far from the location and they were illegally disposing of pig remains by just dumping them into the river. This, of course, is very illegal and the issue was swiftly taken care of.

Do You Believe?

Crop Circles were first reported in the 1860s but didn’t really become a worldwide sensation since the 20th century. This drone caught a crop circle while flying over some crops. Clearing out crops and making such shapes and lines definitely isn’t something that can be done in a day or one night.

Do You Believe?

Crop circles have always been linked to aliens and UFOs. When you lay your eyes on one of these amazing designs, you truly have to question if we are alone in the universe. We likely aren’t and these circles are enough to prove that we aren’t.

House Explosion

At one second a two-story house was standing there and the very next it was blown to bits and pieces of it were shooting all over the neighborhood. Pieces of that house literally flew onto three houses surrounding it. We don’t know the exact reason for such a dramatic explosion but certainly got some attention.

House Explosion

Unfortunately, such an explosion isn’t without its tragedy. One man was inside the house when it blew and he didn’t exactly walk out of that mess. Seems someone busted out their drone and get a good look at the full extent of the damage done.

The Face Of War

Someone traveled over to Syria and brought with them their trusty drone. This is one of their many Syrian cities that was absolutely ruined by the war that has been waging over there. I don’t know if anyone lives in that rubble now, but people once did.

The Face Of War

Believe it or not, this was once a thriving city with restaurants, shopping malls, schools and traffic jams. This was once a beautiful city that was full of life and now it has been reduced to rubble. This is truly a scary image as it shows of quickly life could change.

Where No Man Has Gone Before

Drones are able to do so many amazing things. They are taking photography to the next level. One of the biggest benefits of using drones is that they allow you to capture photos in areas that are just too risky to send a human photographer. Consider the photo below.

Where No Man Has Gone Before

No photographer in their right mind would have gotten this close to a volcanic eruption in Iceland. Even if they weren’t in their right mind, they wouldn’t be able to get the kind of aerial shot that this drone is capturing. This truly amazing.

Elephant Families

Elephants aren’t only very majestic, they are actually some of the most intelligent creatures to walk the face of the earth. They are up there with dolphins, whales, ravens and pigs. When they aren’t being enslaved by your local circus, these creatures are on the other side of the world.

Elephant Families

You can find them roaming around in several countries within Africa. They usually stay in herds so that they can easily fend off predators like lions and other big cats. Due to their close nature, elephants usually live a full and happy life out there.

Group Of Friends

These elephants are out and about looking for some nice plants to bring back to their herd. Sadly, it looks like the land it pretty dry. In the summertime, things can be significantly harder for elephants. Rain doesn’t come as often and things don’t grow.

Group Of Friends

Looks like they might actually have to head back to the herd empty-handed. What a major shame for these elephants. Luckily, they are very resourceful creatures and you can bet that they will find a way to make it through the summer.

Drones Catching Gazelle

Rarely can any mere man walk up to a gazelle and take pictures of one. You just can’t get into a gazelle’s face. These creatures don’t have a lot of courage and will begin to run at the slightest sound. If you step on a twig while approaching one, you’ll capture a blur on your picture.

Drones Catching Gazelle

This drone likely startled the poor animals, but it wasn’t going to let them getaway. Drones can fly pretty fast and it decided to chase these amazing creatures. They can run all they want, but this drone will capture them on film.

Two Predators Working Together

The sperm whale is one of the biggest mammals on the planet, it not the biggest. Just seeing the corpse of one drifting in the ocean is quite an amazing sight. Some other very large creatures are sharks and crocodiles.

Two Predators Working Together

This person flew their drone over the massive dead whale for a closer look and caught an amazing image. What your seeing moving in on the giant floating feast is a shark and crocodile both enjoying a meal together. This is a very rare site.

Speechless

Words can hardly express how amazing this photo is. This is the Sagrat Cor Church in Barcelona, Spain. It’s perched high up on a hill in the city, and this photographer managed to hit the site when a fine mist was swirling around the façade.

Speechless

The incredible result speaks for itself. This one is absolutely stunning! This picture looks incredibly haunting like something out of a gothic old-time movie from the 1920s. We wonder how this church looks on a sunny clear day.

Distant Planet Or Actual Aerial Photo?

This is another example of just how alien an aerial photo can look to us. In what appears to be a beautiful painting, award-winning drone photographer Max Foster was able to capture the Delta River in Iceland from around 1,500 feet.

Distant Planet Or Actual Aerial Photo?

While it looks as if the photo was taken above the surface of Neptune, it actually shows that some parts of our own home planet are still almost too beautiful for words. This doesn’t even look like a real image, but more like a painting done by some artist.

India’s Poverty Epidemic In One Photo

This image shows Dharavi, one of India’s largest slums. While the country is home to more billionaires than any other in the world, it also has a serious poverty epidemic. The slum pictured below is estimated to house a million residents.

India’s Poverty Epidemic In One Photo

While drones certainly capture much of the beauty our planet has to offer, they can also capture the uglier side of humanity. We can’t help but wonder what it’s like for the people that live on top of that hill. Are they considered the kings of the community?

Love From Above

This drone managed to capture in one shot both the majesty of the ocean and the intimacy of a wedding proposal. The minimalist composition of the shot is key here with the couple’s deep feelings mirrored in the deep blue waters becoming waves cresting on the beach at the feet of the lovers.

Love From Above

Like a few other photos in this article, this shows the amazing potential of drones in artistic photography and not just for randomly capturing the strange and unusual. Oh, and congratulations to the happy couple!

The Most Heavily Populated City In The Western Hemisphere

This incredible aerial photo shows a portion of Mexico City. With 21 million people crammed within its borders, Mexico City is the most heavily populated city in the Western Hemisphere and holds the crown for being the biggest city in the world.

The Most Heavily Populated City In The Western Hemisphere

This drone image shows the thousands of homes that are crammed amongst the hills of the busy city. Remember this photo the next time you get frustrated with your morning commute to work! We can’t imagine all the hidden gems one can find in that concrete jungle.

 

A Home In The Clouds

Many of us can relate to wanting to live in a place where you don’t have many neighbors. This Georgian Monk takes that concept to a whole new level! Imagine having to walk down that hill to go to the restroom. It’d be quite the challenge.

A Home In The Clouds

The church pictured below sits atop the Katskhi Pillar in Western Georgia, nearly 140 feet above the surrounding village. They say isolation is important when meditating. The solitary monk who lives here has that covered, we’d say.

Perfect Timing

Humans accomplish some pretty amazing feats, and drone technology is allowing us to capture some of those feats like never before. Take the photo below, for instance. That’s a picture that would have been virtually impossible to capture even ten years.

Perfect Timing

The diver pictured is the Guinness World Record holder for waterfall diving, and with the help of a drone, this image of him jumping off the top of the falls on the Yellow River in China is forever preserved.

More Isolation

The monk in Georgia had a pretty good handle on isolation, but whoever lives in this little house in the middle of Alexandria Bay, which lies between Canada and New York, is serious about keeping solicitors away!  You’ll need a boat or some amazing swimming ability to catch them.

More Isolation

As you can see, the drone managed to capture this photo in Fall, whenever the small island and home is a colorful oasis in the middle of a giant expanse of water. We hope they are okay when the storms start hitting in the winter.

 

Abandoned Beauty

When most of us think of abandoned, dilapidated buildings we probably don’t picture anything that could be even remotely called photogenic. However, some places are more beautiful without humans around than with. This picture is a testament to that.

Abandoned Beauty

This abandoned college in the little-known country of Abkhazia looks as if it’s being reclaimed by Mother Nature. Without drones, we likely never would have seen this structure like this. We wonder about the kinds of things that we could find in a place like that.

A Stunning Waterfall

Waterfalls are an obvious choice when it comes for subjects to photograph using drones. There are plenty of amazing options to pick from all over the world, but Norway’s Mardalsfossen—one of the highest waterfalls in Europe—is one of the most gorgeous on the planet.

A Stunning Waterfall

The falls are drop nearly 1,200 feet, but this drone image makes it look as if the falls disappear in an infinite sea of clouds. Looking at a picture as stunning as this, we have to wonder where the person controlling the drone is located.

Glacier Hopping

For years, many outdoor photographers have traveled to the far corners of the world to capture images of polar bears (sometimes putting themselves at great risk to capture a shot!). Now, drone technology allows photographers to capture images like the one below.

Glacier Hopping

Previously an image like this would only be available if you happened to know a crazy arctic helicopter pilot. Plus, a noisy chopper would have likely scared this big guy off before a photographer had the chance to catch him “mid-hop.”

Saudi Arabian Traffic Jam

This spectacular image was captured with a drone piloted by Abdullah Alnassar high above the red dunes in Saudi Arabia. The white camels pictured below are likely trekking through the desert in search of water or a some shade.

Saudi Arabian Traffic Jam

It takes a second or two for your eyes to process it, but what impresses us most about his photo are the shadows of the animals in the dunes above them. This truly something that you can see in the beautiful deserts of the Middle East.

A Sea Of Ducks

Many Asian farmers raise thousands of ducks so they can harvest their meat and feathers—their main source of income. This drone was able to capture this incredible shot of a farmer in Vietnam crossing his property as the ducks part for him.

A Sea Of Ducks

We can’t help but feel a little fearful for the man. Ducks can be very unpredictable and we’ve all seen the duck chase people at parks. A closer inspection reveals the illusion of the man walking on water! Absolutely amazing drone shot.

Icelandic Beauty

If you thought that the only thing you’d see in Iceland is ice you’d be sorely mistaken!  This drone image shows just how gorgeous the country’s landscape actually is. It looks like something straight out of the Lord of The Rings series.

Icelandic Beauty

The photo was captured at just the right time of day to show the epic mountains and crystal blue rivers cutting through the countryside. This is the kind of stuff drones were meant for! This person really used their drone to its full potential.

Romanian Road

This photo is an absolutely stunning view of a highway in Romania.  It winds its way through a gorgeous forest.  The drone pilot must have captured the image during the peak time in Autumn, because the red, orange, and golden leaves are picture-perfect (pun fully intended!).   

Romanian Road

The way the colors blend into each other is something very unique when compared to other countries. Times have definitely changed. Just think, this same shot would have cost thousands of dollars and a helicopter pilot not so long ago.

Otherworldly Arizona

Even NASA is using drone technology in the newest rovers they’re building to put on the surface of Mars. While the image below may look like a captured photo of a highway running across the surface of the Red Planet, it’s actually a remote highway in Arizona.

Otherworldly Arizona

Imagine driving along this road, taking in the beauty, and being able to pull over, set up your drone, and snag an amazing shot like this. Ain’t technology grand? The desert doesn’t look so hot and awful when you look at it from the view of a drone.

Hi Shanghai

It can be tricky to capture really epic shots in heavily populated urban areas. In the U.S., Federal Aviation rules limit much of the flying that can be done in major cities. As you can imagine, drones can cause some accidents and be distracting.

Hi Shanghai

However, rogue drone pilots still manage to capture some really amazing images, even if it’s not always legal. We’re not exactly sure what China’s aviation laws are, but this is one great shot of a busy intersection in Shanghai.

They Work Hard For The Money

Talk about an image that only a drone could capture!  These folks make their living by rappelling down the sides of skyscrapers and cleaning windows. Now their normally lonely workday is captured forever in this amazing photo.

They Work Hard For The Money

We especially like how the skyscape and surrounding city of Moscow are captured in the reflection of the building. Moscow is a massive city and you can tell by the reflection caught in this amazing picture. Looks like those window washers have a long way to go.

Painting Or Photo?

This beautiful aerial shot is so surreal it could be a Monet painting. It’s amazing that someone was able to take a picture at just the right moment.  The photo was taken in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam in 2017.

Painting Or Photo?

That same year, at the International Drone Photography Contest, this photo took second place out of a field of almost 8,000 total entries. To see the other winners from last year’s contest, visit the website here. You won’t be disappointed by these images.

Not All Is As It Seems

The photo below appears to show a family sitting in a boat in the middle of a desert landscape. However, this drone actually captured a picture of a family sitting in a boat on an actual lake. The setting is Burke Lake in Virginia.

Not All Is As It Seems

You could stare for hours at this photo trying to figure it out, and it never would have been possible without drone technology. While at first glance it may look like their paddling in a desert, you can clearly see the ripples in the water.

Dutch Fort

An amazing example of architecture and landscaping, this image captures a Dutch fort, located in a small town in the eastern part of Holland. The fort is no longer in use, so the site has been turned into a historical museum.

Dutch Fort

The drone image shows how meticulously the grounds were laid out and lined with thick forest. The people in charge of this building really wanted to make sure that it’d be a beautiful building. From the ground you can never truly see how amazing it is.

The Lotus Temple

India is a treasure trove of architectural marvels. The image below was captured by a drone hovering around the Lotus Temple in a remote part of Delhi. While you initially see the amazing building, you will later notice the heavy amount of smog in the air.

The Lotus Temple

The lotus flower is very symbolic, and this photo shows how the architect captured the flower’s beauty in the design of the structure. It’s now against the law to fly drones in this area, so we’re lucky to have gotten this image when we did.

Colorful Italy

The town pictured below is Santa Maddalena in Italy. It’s hard to pick which part is the most beautiful. The sun shining on mountains in the distant is practically divine while the colorful landscape around the small town is almost too much to handle.

Colorful Italy

One thing is for sure, if it weren’t for drone technology we likely never would have seen either. One can’t deny that Italy is easily one of the most colorful places in the world. That isn’t a scene out of a movie, folks, that’s a real place.

The Dead Sea Isn’t Dead Yet

Have you ever seen water this blue? Tzvika Stein is a drone photographer based out of Tel Aviv, and we can thank him for the beautiful photo below. What your looking at is the one and only Dead Sea in the south of Israel.

The Dead Sea Isn’t Dead Yet

The Dead Sea is a threatened body of water, and Stein uses images like this to help raise awareness regarding the future of this amazing wonder of the world. We’d hate to see the opportunity to capture images like this disappear.

Another Amazing Waterfall

When two major river systems meet, the result is sure to be of epic proportions. That’s certainly the case for the Gallinas and Santa Maria Rivers in Mexico. The result of their converging is a 900-foot-wide waterfall known as Cascada de Tamul.

Another Amazing Waterfall

While the best possible view is by using a drone, a close second is to paddle upstream in a canoe and watch the gorgeous turquoise water plunge over the cliffs. This drone has given us a unique view of this waterfall that no one had ever witnessed.

Speaking Of Wonders Of The World

The Taj Mahal in India is one of the world’s Seven Great Wonders. It’s no surprise that drone photographers flock to the area to capture never-before-seen views of the architectural landmark. From this view you can really see how beautiful and big it is.

Speaking Of Wonders Of The World

The photo below shows why it is worth the effort to get there and get your drone airborne!  The Taj Mahal is a beacon for spiritual stillness and peace, and this photo captures that essence beautifully. There really isn’t another place in the world that can compare.

Unrealized Beauty

Aerial photography isn’t anything new by any means—helicopters have been used for many years to capture aerial images. However, helicopters are limited by how low they can fly and how close they can get to certain objects.

Unrealized Beauty

Drones are able to fly much lower and get much closer to subjects, providing an all-new look at things that we might now have thought as “beautiful” in the past. For instance, this farmer’s field. We never knew that a common farm could produce so much color.

A Unique Perspective

Drones have given us the opportunity to see unknown things for the first time, but they’ve also given us the opportunity to see famous things in a new way. Take, for instance, the earthwork sculpture called Spiral Jetty.

A Unique Perspective

This natural creation was made by Robert Smithson back in 1970, so it’s been around for a while now. However, new drone images allow us to see the sculpture like never before. This truly something very unique in our world.

Blue Lobster Farms Of Vietnam

This aerial photo captures a perfect example of Mother Nature and Man working side-by-side. The photo was taken over the beautiful turquoise waters of Vietnam’s Phu Yen province, which is home to many lobster breeding farms.

Blue Lobster Farms Of Vietnam

Photos like this prove that more remote areas of the world have just as much amazing material to photo as the most bustling cities. We wonder how many people this photo will inspire to actually take a look at this part of the country.

Flirting With Danger

While whales aren’t known to eat humans, given the difference in size we can imagine that whale crushing that tiny diver and not even noticing. We can’t help but wonder if that man knew he was so close to one of the biggest mammals on the planet.

Flirting With Danger

Maybe he saw it while diving and is giving the whale a chase. If not, we at least sees that he was captured on this drone image. That said, this is an amazing picture that shows just how big a whale is when placed right next to a human.

Gang Of Hippos

Nobody could have capture a photo like this before modern times. Perhaps it could have been captured with a helicopter, but the erratic sound would have definitely killed their peaceful vibes and would have sent them swimming away.

Gang Of Hippos

With a quiet drone, you are able to capture these hippos in all of their serenity. While that looks beautiful, it is also very scary when you consider what would happen to you if you fell into the middle of that circle. Hippos are extremely dangerous.

Hakuna Matata!

This lion is not only the king of the jungle, but also the king of deception. As dangerous as lions are, this one manages to look absolutely adorable. It kind of makes you wonder if he will ever pounce upon its prey or is just interested in cuddling in the grass. Either way, this lion puts Simba to shame!

Hakuna Matata!

It kind of makes you wonder if he will ever pounce upon its prey or is just interested in cuddling in the grass. Either way, this lion puts Simba to shame!

Eye of the Peacock

This incredible water formation happened entirely by accident. This magnificent shot from Iceland shows what looks like a colorful eye of Mother Nature when she sheds a river of tears.

Eye of the Peacock

This brilliant image of the geyser Strokkur makes you want to pack your bags and jump on a plane to Iceland!

Magic Pyramids

This brilliant drone photo was snapped in Bagan, Myanmar by Witold Ziomek. The ancient architecture backed by the hot air balloons in the backdrop is absolutely stunning.

Magic Pyramids

Because it’s true, although these pyramid-shaped buildings have an unknown use, they remain resolutely beautiful.

Rome By Night

Rome is a magical city full of history and activities. But it is at night that its most famous site shines the brightest. It is the Coliseum that is the star of the city, but seeing it from a drone’s eye view is a real treat.

Rome By Night

The incredible sunset behind the scenes isn’t so bad either.

Whoopsie Daisy

An unfortunate incident caused this semi to tip over and spill a bunch of dirt on the side of the road. The consequences were likely very dire, but the effect of the different shades of brown makes for a nice photograph.

Whoopsie Daisy

What’s even more unbelievable is that no cars have stopped to help the driver!

Gooalllll!

This is an incredible bird’s eye view of the Norwegian Lofoten islands, where football is a way of life. The picture was taken in a village called Henningsville, where the population is no more than 500.

Gooalllll!

The inhabitants rely on fishing for survival but still prioritize their football field over anything else.

A Rainbow on the Ice

This brilliant photo was snapped at Yellowstone Park in the United States. It shows the way in which the hot sulfur goes around the snow creating such picturesque trails.

A Rainbow on the Ice

The clouds hovering over the rivulets and pools are a nice touch that makes you wish you were a fly on the wall!

Is it France?

This photograph is a part of a series of pictures showing the damage that industrial waste has done to the scenery.

Is it France?

Although exhibiting waves of beautiful color, these aerial photographs actually demonstrate the damage mankind has done to the world we live in. Shame on us for letting it get this bad.

A Diamond in the Rough

This brilliantly simple photo shows a dancer performing in a courtyard in Shanghai, China. The multiple shades of black and gray are highly effective in their contrast against the red dress.

A Diamond in the Rough

The dancer is all on her own in the yard, which really makes you wonder what happened to get her in such a position.

Bull’s Eye

Luis Saguar Domingo, a young man from Spain, received his drone as a holiday gift. He was in Madrid looking for a nice place to fly the new drone.

Bull’s Eye

He feels relaxed when flying the drone simply because of all the beautiful landscapes he’s able to see from an incredible perspective.

Don’t Jump in

This is a sinkhole that appeared in Guatemala City just after the city was hit by Agatha, the tropical storm. This all happened back in 2010, and took a three-story factory with it.

Don’t Jump in

There are numerous factors that can contribute to the appearance of sinkholes, but pretty much all experts agree that it is not always due to natural causes.

How to Save a Life

Fly your drone over Morrison’s Quarry in Quebec to feel like you’ve landed in a tropical resort. The plane isn’t the only thing you’ll find in these waters, there are also numerous tugboats and cars.

How to Save a Life

They were placed there for divers to enjoy and to practice saving someone from a submerged vehicle.

Caught in the Act

More and more people choose to sunbathe on a rooftop as a great way to catch some fresh air and some rays for your skin. However, it quickly turns into a bad day when somebody decides to take a drone up there and film what is going on.

Caught in the Act

This nice lady in the photo gives us a great idea of how to get rid of unwelcome guests.

Traffic Jam

China is the world’s most populous country with over 1.4 billion people. And that title brings a lot of trouble in different shapes and forms for the country and the citizens themselves.

Traffic Jam

It is no secret that they have the worst traffic jams in the world, as proven by these fifty lanes that are filled to the brim with cars.

Six Flags

The park was closed during the preparations for Hurricane Katrina back in 2005, but nobody expected that it would close for good on that sad August month.

Six Flags

This particular drone photo captured the park just two weeks after the hurricane when it was still underwater.

What Happens in Tuscon

What happens to the air pilots’ equipment that served its purpose? Those get their final resting spot at “The Boneyard” in Tucson, Arizona. It is a storage center that has been around since the end of the Second World War.

What Happens in Tuscon

It currently stores several thousand different types of military airplanes which makes it the largest in the world to do so.

View From the Top

The Hong Kong skyscrapers are without a doubt beautiful to look at, but they present a huge problem for the citizens of Hong Kong due to the challenges to get an affordable place in the housing market.

View From the Top

If we take a look at the statistics, we can see that Hong Kong is the fourth-most densely populated area in the world.

Birds are Nesting

This is the largest-known bird nest on Earth. If you wanted to snap a photo like this one, you would need a drone, obviously. However, you would also need access to the Kalahari Desert, which the South African photographer, responsible for the shot, had.

Birds are Nesting

There are hundreds of social weaver birds living in this particular nest.

The Kraken Hole

We are looking at the Kraken Hole from a drone’s perspective. It is not, however, a natural occurrence but rather a man-made one. It is an artificial spillway that was built on the grounds of a Californian reservoir.

The Kraken Hole

If you did not know what the backstory to this hole is, you might think that you have just stumbled upon a vortex of some kind.

To Staten Island

The Staten Island boat graveyard and has been there since the 1930s. It was supposed to be a simple salvage yard, where boats would be brought in to be disassembled and the useful parts sold on.

To Staten Island

It was not turning much profit so they decided that it was not worth it and abandoned the whole idea.

Africa’s Ultimate Danger

While there is no denying that hippos are amazing creatures, they are also the most dangerous in all of Africa. When thinking about the most dangerous animal in Africa, most would likely place a lion or gorilla in the front of the list, but that isn’t true at all.

Africa’s Ultimate Danger

When it comes to animals behind the most human deaths, the hippos take the cake. That said, it should be important to know that they can only run in a straight line. Never assume that a cute hippo is an animal that wants human attention.

Close Call

These two friends are certainly enjoying themselves as they paddle their surfboards around the deep blue sea. Their mood is light unmistakenly light-hearted as they are giving themselves a high five. That said, their moods would change quickly if they could see who was watching them from below.

Close Call

If life was anything like the Jaws movies, these two would be lunch right about now. Maybe one friend would survive to tell about the encounter as a way to push the plot. Luckily, this isn’t a movie and the shark just swam by the two girls as if they weren’t even there.

Farmer’s Heroic Moment

What we’re seeing now is drone footage of one heroic farmer’s attempt to prevent a raging fire from spreading and save his crops. As you know, farmers were pretty darn hard for their crops and a bad season could be the difference between eating steak for dinner or just slurping on a bowl of cabbage water soup.

Farmer’s Heroic Moment

Just as he saw his crops being lost, this farmer decided to jump in his tractor and make a fire line. This is when they remove the dry soil from the land so that they can stop the fire from burning more crops. He was certainly risking his life as the fire was hurt enough to burn away the paint on one side of the tractor. In the end, firefighters credited his quick thinking for saving the farm.

Clown In A Cornfield

Cornfields don’t have the best reputation in the world. They are often associated with horror movies, UFO encounters and even cult sacrifice. Cornfields are large, remote and can be quite scary if you get lost in one. There have been many a tale of both children and adults getting lost in these fields and never coming out alive.

Clown In A Cornfield

One man was flying his drone of a cornfield outside of town and that is when he spotted something very creepy. He spotted a clown who appeared to be studying the drone. Once the drone moved closer to him, the clown took off running as fast as it could into some nearby woods. The clown was never seen again, but we have to wonder about the clown’s intentions.

Lunch Time

One really has to question what this world has come to when a pig can’t even get a drink of water these days without a crocodile swooping up out of the water and grabbing him for lunch. Sadly, there is a lot that we don’t know here.

The drone wasn’t able to capture the epic struggle the pig must have put up for his life. Instead, as the drome crept up across a lake, we only saw a crocodile slowly swimming down the river whilst carrying the dead pig in its mouth.

A Shark And His Lunch

This drone just happened to be in the right place at the right time. What are the chances that they’d be flying over the sea just a shark was about to settle into a meal? Looks like whatever he got his claws into were pretty big.

A Shark And His Lunch

We wonder if he managed to get a giant whale or something. If it is, hopefully, there is more meat than plastic on that creature. There were recently some whales that washed up on a shore in Europe and they had stomachs full of plastic.

Crash!

This man just got his drone off the ground and just as it was gaining speed and crossing a path, this bike did an amazing jump and flew right into the drone. This did not end well, as the drone broke on impact and fell to the floor and was out of commission.

Crash!

The man flew off of his bike and the bike fell on his side. Thankfully, the man was okay and the bike wasn’t so damaged. There can be nothing scarier than seeing something crash into you. Imagine how that biker felt when he saw that drone.
