The Icelandic “Spring” On Instagram: Winner Of This Week’s #GVPics

Spring is upon us, or so we thought. The country’s flowers had just started to bloom when the snow came and covered all of it. Winter’s back, and as beautiful as it may be, we hope it won’t stay for too long.

The photographers who took part in this week’s #GVpics Instagram competition didn’t seem to mind the cold weather and shot beautiful pictures of Icelandic nature and life.

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

“Quick honey, the timer is only 5 seconds!”

They say don’t eat yellow snow, I don’t know if I’d trust yellow fog either.
