Amos Chapple has established himself as quite the photographer. He has traveled all over the world capturing places through his lens. But some of his most enigmatic ones were captured using a mounted camera on a quad-copter.

That kind of drone technology is now banned in many places around the world, which makes Chapple’s images quite unique, as they’re proof that a time existed when the scope of technology was limitless.
