We’ve had a steady stream of Instagram photographs marked #GVpics that continually amaze us, and this week was no exception. We are really glad to see that readers are enjoying the longer and brighter days, and of course, capturing the moments and sharing them with us.

It’s fascinating to see what people can create with only a smartphone! (and in some cases, a Canon EOS 5D and a tripod.)

Keep tagging your pictures with #GVpics for a chance of becoming the winner of next week’s Instagram competition!

The runners-up:

Spring is finally here!

Don’t feel bad if you aren’t this picture perfect while diving into Seljavallalaug—most of us aren’t.

Beautiful, if a little nauseating.

Waking up after a night out like:

Did you know that nudity is an ordinary thing in Iceland? It's totally normal to strip naked and shower with other people before entering public swimming pools. They also bathe naked in hot springs and jump naked into the sea or snow.?❄ ___________________ Tudtad,hogy Izlandon abszolut normális dolognak szamít a meztelenkedés? Az izlandiak nem szégyenlösek ledobni ruhájukat egymás elött az uszodakban illetve melegvízü forrásokban vagy ha a hóban akarnak felfrissülni.⛄? #erlendistravel #naked #swimming #facts #iceland #nudity #snow #cold #mik #ikozosseg #instahun #instatravel #vscohun #vscocam #boy #mountain #traveling #nature #brave #travelStoke #absoluteiceland #GVpics #ihu #imagyar #igershungary #wonderland. #LiveTravelChannel
