#GVPics Contest: Iceland’s First Days Of Summer

Looking out the window and seeing folks enjoying the sun in April is a rare sight. The sun that is, not the happy folks. It is approximately 11°C outside right now meaning no oversized furry coats anymore, just your most fashionable shades. We’re happy to see our readers enjoying themselves in the sunny photographs from this week’s competition.

On days like these one can’t help but snap a few pics. Just remember to keep tagging your photographs with the hashtag #GVpics for a chance at becoming the winner of next week’s competition!

The runners-up:

The snowy Icelandic desert looking sunnier than usual.

This looks like outer space dreamland to me. Well, actually just Iceland in a nutshell 🙂 #iceland

A beautiful tribute to earth day. True words spoken.

I might have jumped the gun. It might still be winter somewhere in Iceland.

This guy took earth day very seriously.

This church is in serious need of a make-over, some church counturing.

Look how happy they are to get to finally play in the sun!

When the nature pool is a lot colder than you expected.

The best thing about Iceland so far. Having a bath in the middle of nature makes me cry! #iceland #gvpics

Summer might be here, but at least don’t throw your rain coat away just yet.
