Anyone who appreciated the aesthetic quality of the climax in Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,will enjoy this POV footage of an eagle flying in the mountain ranges of France. Apparently human beings have been strapping Go-Pro cams to all manner of fauna,  this video went viral because the scenery is so breathtaking. Compare virality against similar footage, featuring a dreary grey landscape.

Aerial photography is like godmode view –  Home is a great example of how it can be used to great effect. For entry-level efforts in this field, this $500 drone is an intriguing gadget for amateur efforts in this field. Wingsuit flying yields great adrenaline-churning footage too, at least you can be sure no animals were harmed in the making of the video.
