Contributor Zdronu presents his spectacular adventure in Ireland from a drone. In one week, he visited iconic places like the Cliffs of Moher, Rock of Cashel, Kilkenny Castle, Drombeg Stone Circle, Burren National Park, Galway, and Charles Fort.

Some of the most iconic sights of the Netherlands are its windmills.  While the Dutch did not invent windmills, the windswept North European Plain proved an ideal environment to perfect the technology.  One of the best place to see Dutch windmills is around the town of Zanse Schans, which lies in the province of North Holland, just west of Amsterdam; It's home to hundreds of these wooden marvels.  Check out this DVOW nominated drone video of the windmills around Zanse Schans, compliments of JS Videography.

Visit UK - Wales, Scotland, England - Drone footage

The Netherlands offers some of the most iconic winter scenery in Europe.  While the (mostly) dead-flat landscapes of the North European Plain generally preclude skiing, it's a paradise for ice-skating as well as more adventurous action sports which take advantage of its wide-open frozen expanses.  It's also simply beautiful, whether it be the windmills of the Zaanse Schans region west of Amsterdam or its colorful medieval towns.  Those are the takeaways from this fantastic DVOW-winning drone video of the Dutch winter by contributor By_ewold.
