Drones for photography are amazing. The scenes that they can capture would’ve taken a helicopter and vast amounts of money in the not too distant past. Now you can go to your local Target and pick up a very capable drone for under 500 bucks. I am a casual enthusiast drone photographer and just captures of my backyard or hiking trips give you a whole new perspective of the space that you inhabit.

I'm always a little uneasy when I see images like this. Is it legal? Do they have the right certifications and protections? If a drone falls onto a highway there could be some pretty serious problems.

But they're beautiful photos regardless.
