Minimalistic Painting For This Week’s #GVPics Instagram Competition

Minimalistic Painting For This Week’s #GVPics Instagram Competition

Iceland has a lot going on right now; kids are starting school, some are preparing for winter and painting their houses, while others are enjoying the last days of summer by taking walks by the harbour. Of course, it wouldn’t be Iceland without tourists taking pictures of anything and everything that strikes their attention.

Check out the winner and runners-up for this weeks Instagram competition and remember to keep tagging your pictures with #gvpics for a chance at becoming next week’s champion!

Some kids would rather just work instead of starting school.

Child labour is alive and well in Iceland! #Menningarnott #reykjavik #gvpics #childlabour #pickaxe #shovels

Fishing can’t get any better than this.

So close yet so far.

Lighthouse remains visible during the misty days in Iceland.

And so does this boat in sight.
