Selfies became a new phenomenon in photography in 2014, but so did photos and videos shot by drones. A number of new services, like TravelbyDrone and Dronestagram display fabulous image material submitted by thousands of drone owners. Beautiful sceneries and funny events are on the menu for drone photo viewers.
Dronestagram arranged a competition for the best drone photos of 2014, and an eagle who came to check out a drone won the title.

When authors and photographers collect material for travel guidebooks, they take hundreds or thousands of photos and perhaps video clips from a destination. As a book project progresses into final manuscript stage and a graphic designer begins to create the layout for the book, hard choices have to be made.
Plenty of beautiful photographs and fun videos have to be left out from the book because every element must add value to the content – even though the space is not that limited in an ebook as it used to be in paper books.
Here is a video clip that was shot on a mountain just above the city of Nice in Cote d’Azur, France. The valley of river Var looms in the background. The video was intended for the book The Gems of Nice and the French Riviera.
