#HappierPlace Instagram Favorites: April 2019

Almond tree pink spring blossom #happierplace hashtag April

Isn’t April the most thrilling month? Warm, sunny days are filled with outdoor fun, spring blossoms and animals at their most active. Then a sudden snow storm covers all in brisk white again. And in New Zealand it’s autumn!

Here is just a small selection of a few of our favorite photos that were tagged #HappierPlace on Instagram in April. By the way, we really try to pick only about a dozen photos for these blog posts. We also try to show a variety of locations and situations and angles. So even though in April we naturally had to show quite a few spring blooms, we picked photos that offered a variety of perspectives.

Hopefully, these different photos will inspire you to look for something fresh outside – be it in an old European city, American mountains or from the perspective of your dog. Whatever it is, if you capture it, please share it with the hashtag #HappierPlace so we can see it, too. And maybe one of your photos will get featured in the Happier_Place Instagram gallery, on the Happier Place Facebook page and Happier Place Twitter account and/or the next month’s round-up

Was really great to capture this cool willow tree in fall colors with some clouds reflected in Lake Wanaka at sunrise this month in New Zealand. Having finally gotten to this place, I can see why it is so popular but it is just one of so many amazing things to see and do in the area – hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, standup paddling, stargazing, and more. . . . . . #thatwanakatree #wanaka #nz #newzealand #nztrip #otago #nzadventures #southisland #fallcolors #sunrise #hikingnz #mountains_seas_and_trees #mountains #reflection #newzealandfinds #hiking #kayaking #happierplace #bestnatureshot #earthpix #earth_shotz #iconic #buyphotography #shopphotography #shopartonline #landscapephotography #outdoorphotography #reflectionphotography

#HappierPlace Dog of the Month

Just last month, we introduced the idea of featuring a #HappierPlace dog as part of the round-up. And it’s already taking off! You made us happier with all the extra dog photos we got to see this month. Thank you. Of course, it made it harder to choose just one April Dog of the Month. And the winner is: unnamed dog on Greek island photographed by a German travel team. Vielen Dank.

  1. Nature I always say is indeed blissful and beautiful, I really love the pictures they are indeed happy places to be.

  2. We have many cherry blossoms here in Germany. When the weather is nice it is also warm outside and thus the perfect time for us to take picture.

  3. What lovely photos I can see why they are tagged happier place x

  4. I love your choices! Flowers definitely are a symbol for spring and there were some lovely shots!

  5. How breathtaking! Portugal is so beautiful…I love the pool view and the lake too. The mountains in spring also have such a scenic view. Nature does have a way of catching anyone’s eye.

  6. Enjoyed seeing different Spring photos from different parts of the world!!
