25 Jaw-Dropping Pictures Captured By The Winners Of The 2018 Drone Photo Contest

Each year SkyPixel sifts through thousands of aerial photos to find the best drone images and award them with incredible prizes. The grand prize winner for 2018, Deryk Baumgärtner, received camera gear worth $12,090 for his astonishing portrayal of Saint Michael's Mount, an island situated in Normandy, France. Visited by almost three million people every year, Saint Michael's Mount is already a stunning heritage site by itself, but Baumgärtner's incredible drone photography skills took the island, and it's breathtaking monastery to a whole new level.


Deryk Baumgärtner said he thought that he had no chance to be in the top participants of this competition, "It was an unbelievable feeling when I got the mail that I won the Grand Prize. Never thought that I had the slightest chance to be in the top100." He added that it was his first time entering the SkyPixel competition, but he's been interested in aerial photography for lots of years, "I’ve been interested in aerial photography since the 1st DJI Phantom in 2013 came to the market. Today I own the DJI Mavic Pro 1, and I'm still satisfied with its compact size which makes it pretty easy to travel with."
