It hasn’t taken long for drones to go from extreme novelty to almost ordinary: In the 10 months since the Federal Aviation Administration began requiring registration of all drones over half a pound in weight, the agency has racked up more registrations of these remote-controlled flying devices than it has registrations for all airplanes.

One of the main reasons drones are so popular is photography and video. Shot from above, even ordinary places grab your attention, and beautiful places are even more striking.

An example can be seen in a video put together by Derek Thompson of Concord, who has been filming New Hampshire from above for a number of months.
