Updated on December 21, 2016

A Sampling of the Most Beautiful Drone Videos

Flying drones as a hobby is a lot of fun, but drones take on a whole new purpose when they are used to capture aerial video of landscapes. Many drone hobbyists quickly graduate from flying drones casually to using them to capture amazing video footage of the natural world in which we all live. Of course, what good is a beautiful nature video, if nobody can watch it? That's where a site like YouTube comes in handy. We as the viewers are the beneficiaries of the video artists who post their drone videos.

The following is a sampling of some of the most spectacular and beautiful drone videos that are currently available. What is really cool about these aerial videos is that they allow you to explore and witness places on the Earth that previously were hard to capture on video from the air and in some cases seeing at all. Drones are capable of flying so low and with so much finite control that the videos that they capture of the natural wonders of the world are nothing short of stunning.

There is something very soothing and exhilarating about watching a video shot by a drone as it smoothly flies over the Earth. Do not take my word for it. Take a look a this sampling of the beautiful drone videos. They really open your eyes to all the natural beauty that the world has to offer.
