The beautiful lighthouse at Point of Ayr in North Wales is the winning shot in a recent drone photography competition held by the UK's Civil Aviation Authority, in partnership with Visit England.

The shot, taken by amateur aerial photographer James Farley was selected from over 1,200 submissions.

The competition, "400ft Britain", aimed to not only showcase the beauty of Britain's landscape, but also highlight safe drone use and the CAA's new "Drone Code".

Following a variety of drone-related incidents in the UK, including several near misses at major airports, the CAA is focussed on emphasising safe use practices for all drone pilots, from excited amateurs to professional videographers.
