Stunning aerial images capture UK’s beauty for competition celebrating best of drone photography 

Every one of these incredible photographs of Britain was taken from the air using a drone.

They show the Great British countryside in all its glory, from the spectacular agricultural views of Somerset to the jaw-dropping beauty of rural Scotland.

The photographs are all entries into a competition called Shot On My Drone run by the Civila Aviation Authority (CAA).

More than 300,000 Britons fly drones and model aircraft, although research by the CAA found 20 per cent of them and half of the general public are unaware that the organisation’s approval is usually needed to fly one in a town or city.

Jonathan Nicholson, the CAA’s assistant communications chief said: ‘The launch of #ShotOnMyDrone aims to showcase some of the stunning images that UK drone users take while also reminding everyone that whether they’re flying in a town, city, or the countryside, they must comply with our Dronecode and stay safe when flying a drone.’   

The winners in each category will have their images placed on display at the prestigious London headquarters of the UK Royal Aeronautical Society.

The competition is open until January 31, 2022 and can be entered at caa-dronecomp.uk.
