Colour Concept For This Week’s #GVPics

Published October 10, 2016

Autumn doesn’t have the charisma of summer’s bright shine, but there is something refreshing about its downplayed tones. As we head toward more days of grey, we thought we’d recognise the more subtle colours at play that make up our surroundings.

This week’s runners-up:

A flattering farewell.

Farewell Iceland! I've had an amazing week. Next stop … Spain. #iceland #streetphotography #street #reykjavik #blackandwhite #igers_iceland #igersiceland #GVPics #streetscene #streetlife #streetlife_award #travels #travelling #thistravellinglife

Poseidon’s palate.

We were on a roadtrip to Snæfellsnes and due to a huge storm we spot huge waves at Djupalonsandur beach. This guy was way to close to the sea, he got soaking wet and was almost swallowed by this deadly beauty. Please stay away from the seashore, dont risk your life, enjoy this nature with respectful distance.
