Despite February being the coldest month in many places, we can present to you a round-up of beautiful outdoor photos published and tagged #HappierPlace this past month.
February can be so tough! Often cold and grey – and at a time when most of us have had enough winter already. There’s not even a fun cookies and gift-exchange holiday to break it up. Well, there’s Valentine’s Day. But that can be a bummer, too.
With that in mind, we’re thrilled that during this past month so many of you ventured outdoors, captured beautiful sceneries, animals and plants that inspire us all to enjoy life and go outside.
But since February is such a challenge, a lot of photographers also shared images taken during spring and summer days – expressing how much they longed for those warmer, sunnier, more colorful times.
Today we’d like to celebrate those photos especially because they emphasis the concept of the *mental* Happier Place. During darker days, our spirits can be lifted by envisioning and visiting a beautiful place in our minds. It’s one of the reasons why we think sharing photos of places in nature is so helpful in making others and ourselves happier.
A big THANKS to all photographers and videographers who venture outdoors and return to share beauty and inspiration with everyone!
In this post you will find a selection of some of our favorite photos tagged #HappierPlace on Instagram in Februrary. As usual, we’ll only share 1 photo per photographer. But we may still feature some of these over in our @Happier_Place Instagram gallery.
