The sun is coming out here in Iceland with the slow change of seasons, meaning the light is getting better and better for photography. With blue skies, bright sun, and pink sunsets, the entries for our weekly #GVpics Instagram competitions keep getting better and better. How do you guys do it?

So without further ado: here are the pictures that made our top ten list in this week’s #GVpics contest!

The runners-up:
