Weekly #GVpics: The 10 Best Iceland Instagrams

We had a nice visit yesterday from Julia, the winner of last week’s #GVpics Instagram competition, who dropped by with her eight-year-old son Ágúst to pick up their two t-shirts. Here’s what went down:

But, you know, time waits for no man. So without further ado, we present our favourites from this week’s batch. Oh and hey, if you want to enter yourself, follow us here and then tag your Iceland-related Instagrams with #GVpics, and you could win a stupendously fashionable Grapevine t-shirt of your very own.

Here’s the shortlist:

Tobias, aka @cores163, impressed us with his vivid black and white captures of Reykjavík’s street life, and his generally atmospheric shots of Iceland. So, he’ll be protecting his torso from the elements and other stuff like dust and direct sunlight, FOR FREE. We are TOO good to you guys, srsly. Congrats Tobias, and see you all next week for round four.
