Our 10 Instagram posts of 2016

Share this

Over the past year our photographers, editors, writers and readers have scoured the globe searching for the best shot or simply snapping away on their travels. Our Instagram showcases just some of our favourites. Here, you’ll find the 10 that proved most popular with you this year from Myanmar to ‘Merica (and everywhere in between) 

  1. Dia De Muertos in Cancun’s Parque Las Palapas

2. Street art in Lisbon

3. Sunrise over Bagan 

4. A Gentoo penguin

5. The supermoon in Utah


Seeing the #Supermoon is an incredible experience. It hasn’t been this close in its orbit around the Earth since 1948, and won’t be again until 2034. This is an in-camera double exposure of the supermoon near Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, #Utah. For those of you not familiar with a double exposure, it means taking two shots on top of each other, thereby making one image. The moon was actually setting a bit further to the west than my view of Delicate Arch. I hope you’ll excuse my use of creative license. Both images shot in camera with FUJIFILM X-T1 and XF100-400 F4.5-5.6 lens and 1.4X teleconverter.
