Dronestagram: the magic of autumn from above

Whilst we all become increasingly preoccupied by Christmas, snow and cosy interiors, outside the leaves are still decked out in full autumnal splendour and it's not too late to pack some last-minute foliage hunting into 2016.

Bogata Forest, Romania

With plenty of enticing colours, Romania is a wonderful, if slightly off-the-beaten-track destination for autumn travel. Its challenging roads also make it one of the best European destinations for a road trip. - © Calin-Andrei STAN / Deepbluero

Ontario, Canada

The wilds of Ontario make it a fantastic place to appreciate the fading colours of autumn. One of the best ways to see maximum colour here is to hire a car and tour the entire state from Ottawa in the south to Northern Ontario's Algoma Country. - © Opspeculate
