These few logs of driftwood ended their sea odyssey on this deserted beach in Iceland. A scene that is pretty common to someone who’s been to the West Coast of the US. But for someone who lives in Iceland, where there are very few trees it’s a source of excitement. I remember watching Ben park the car and walk camera in hand to the logs, he seemed so content to see them. And so was I after I realized how special this was.. #ektar100
Renee Hahne – @ReneeRoaming
Renee travels with her husband Matthew, often in an old VW van, and they explore the world from their home in Seattle. With breathtaking scenery and photos that would look equally at home in a fashion magazine, her Instagram account will inspire you to visit new places and travel together with people you love.

A the low point my loaded bag & feet were almost dragging in the swollen river below. The Tyrolean traverse, a classic Patagonian commute, is one of the most memorable experiences from my trip. My smile was big as I whipped across this river passing through mist and wind en route to the glacier. . @blackdiamond 📷 @_ryanhill_
Emilie Ristevski – @HelloEmilie

Andrew Ling – @AndrewLing
Andrew’s work focuses on light and the way it interacts with the world. From snow-covered mountaintops kissed by the last light of a sunset, to early morning rays shooting through Monument Valley, to the glow of wildfires burning in Glacier National Park, he’s a master of color and lighting, and uses that skill to show the beauty of his travels.
Jarrad Seng – @JarradSeng
Jarrad has a unique style that shines through his travel photography, and his photos tell stories that show how travel can be as much about adventure as a chance to see new places.

If you’re the type of traveler that loves the feeling of sand between your toes, or a quick dip in the ocean, you’ll love Nick’s travel photography.
Benjamin Everett – @Bejamin

Theron Humphrey – @ThisWildIdea
Theron travels everywhere with his coonhound Maddie, so if you’re the type of person who loves animals as much as you love travel photography, definitely check out his feed. Together they explore places near and far, while Maddie enjoys the scenery just as much as Theron does.
