Photography It's pretty tough to get a bad shot of Istanbul's skyline, but it's also pretty tough to get a shot that looks THIS incredible. Take a bow, @emmahayes93

10 INSTAGRAMMERS EVERY TRAVELLER SHOULD FOLLOW

Last week, we kick-started our hunt for our favourite travel Instagrammers in the world. We thought it’d be easy. It wasn’t. In fact, the quality was so high and it was so difficult to pick our favourite photos and accounts, that we’ve decided to make this a regular thing.

So if you think you’ve got the lensmanship to compete with some of these snaps, upload your best travel photos, tag us @geckosadventures, use the hashtag #RunWild, and we may well feature you in a post that looks very similar to this one. We’ll be publishing our favourite snaps every couple of weeks – so keep your eyes open. There’s hell of a lot of visual goodness out there. We’d hate for you to miss any of it.

Scroll through our favourites from our first batch of entrants below. Happy gramming!

Iguazu Falls, Brazil – @theholistictraveller

Iguazu Falls are some of our favourite falls, so this was an easy selection. @theholistictraveller with an awesome shot.

Georgia – @caras_travel_diary

@caras_travel_diary has a whole host of shots from all over the world. We loved this one taken in Georgia. Girl's got a good eye, that's for sure.

Switzerland – @derekcoverby

@derekcoverby doesn't always post travel snaps, but when he does, they're often pretty freakin' special. This one, taken in Switzerland, is no exception.

Rice farmers, Vietnam – @giupo89

@giupo89's Instagram account is full of awesome travel shots, including some from his recent Geckos trip in Vietnam. We love this one, showing Vietnamese farmers working away in the rice fields. Good job, Giuseppe!

Cappadocia, Turkey – @emmahayes93

@emmhayes photos of Turkey were so good, we had no choice but to include her in this gallery twice. Here's Cappadocia, looking awfully splendid.

View on the wing – @ginfarrell

Yeah, photos of aeroplane wings are kinda overdone, but the colours/filter on this one really make it pop. @ginfarrell with the lensmanship.
