Welcoming Autumn For This Week’s #GVPics

Welcoming Autumn For This Week’s #GVPics

Autumn is approaching, and the change of season is noticeable in the entries we received for this week’s #GVpics contest. Not only are the colours in the landscape changing, but it’s also the time to see northern lights at their best.

Remember to continue tagging your photograph with the hashtag #GVPics for a chance at becoming the winner of next week’s competition.

Our runners-up are:

Give me that ice cream… NOW.

If you ever get lost in Iceland, just look for one of these.

Northern lights are always captivating whether you see them looking up…

Or whether you can catch them at eye level.

Lucky enough to watch the northern lights in Reykjavik tonight! #facetime #iceland #reykjavik #northernlights #gvpics
