Ever since the finalists were announced back in 2007, the New 7 Wonders of the World have captured the imagination of travellers and artists alike, including the Russian-based photography group AirPano. Specialising in drone photography, their images provide unique aerial perspectives of these incredible sites plus more besides as they continue to visit some of the world’s most stunning destinations with their bird’s eye view. Here we’ve selected our favourite of AirPano’s amazing photographs of the New 7 World Wonders including, of course, the 8th honorary member – the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.
