Photographer Amos Chapple is showing the world in a different perspective. Using a small drone to lift his camera into the sky high above famed cathedrals or monuments, he captured a series of incredible aerial images. Amos Chapple won the New Zealand Junior Photographer of the Year in 2003 and New Zealand Environment Photographer 2006 and started his career as a press photographer. In 2009, he won the Cathay Pacific Travel Photographer of the Year award.

This activity draws a lot of attention so he normally avoids areas where there are many other people. Famous cities and historic sites were photographed from new angles by Chapple, from the Sacré-Cœur to the Jama Masjid, the heart of Islam in India, this drone photography work is breathtaking.
