Dronestagram, a photo-sharing community dedicated to the aerially-minded, has just released the winners of its third International Drone Photography Contest. The winning photos, all shot by drones, were selected by National Geographic editors from thousands of entries.

Each showcases a different breathtaking destination, shot from dizzying perspectives far beyond the reach of most photographers.
