It was taken by 34-year-old drone snapper Yura Borschev.

He said: “My photography is all about aerial perspectives and although it started as just a hobby three years ago, today it is a big part of my life.

“Drone photography is my passion, I love shooting both nature and cities from great heights.”

Contest judge Christoph Seabeacher added: “It is such a creative and awesome photo of a such a curious place that could only be appreciated in this way from above.

“The colours are beautiful and the angle I believe reflects a very modern way of taking pictures which is rarely seen.”

Other outstanding entries to the contest included a stunning golden canopy formed on a tree-lined avenue in the US,  and a sunrise over temples in Myanmar.
