The Cold Never Bothered The Invisible Man #GVPics

Reykjavík’s been snowy, rainy and sunny all in the span of two weeks. The only thing that´s been steady for a few days is the fireworks you hear everywhere around. And every year, it gets people outside to take spectacular photos.

Check out the winner and runners-up and remember to keep tagging your pictures with #gvpics for a chance at becoming next week’s champion!

One of the most beautiful place to catch the firework spectacle on New Year’s Eve.

Clouds reflecting in puddles of melted snow.

… but also very impressive and colorful.

Looks like something out of a Star Wars story
