When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade.

In early 2014 I set up our Instagram account @munichandthemountains, and for many moons I thoroughly enjoyed posting photos, and curating our feed, until in mid-October my phone was stolen. (In Barcelona, you knew it:)

In a spontaneous attempt to keep sharing photos with our followers (meanwhile 5.000+) while I was ‘phoneless’, an impromptu Instagram Takeover was started with the help of fellow Instagrammers Sacha & Liz Ke. We quickly put together a list of photographers from the Alps and asked them to take over our account and share their favourite spots in the Alps for 3 consecutive days. There were so many amazing Instagrammers, there was no stopping us! In the end, the takeover lasted for more then 2 months all the way until the end of the year and thus we decided to write a blogpost featuring all participating photographers and a few more we think are spectacular.

So now, if you are looking to add some #mountainlove from the Alps to your Instagram feed, here is Munich & The Mountains’ guide to the best mountain photographers you should follow on Instagram. Feel free to share your favorite Instagram accounts in the comments below!
