Here in the UK, Spring is approaching – it may not always look like it, but it is, we promise! To remind you that the sun is on its way, we’ve pulled together five of our absolute favourite wanderlust-inspiring Instagram accounts to give you some inspiration for your own Spring photography (which will hopefully include some sun…Note: this is not a guarantee).

Not only does this account feature great photography from all over the world, it also has some insanely cute animal pictures. Because who doesn’t love puppies in the snow? And tiger cubs? And baby turtles? And penguins!
National Geographic Travel
It’s National Geographic – need we say more?
Three Days of Water, photograph by @ladzinski [3 of 10] A colorful sunset illuminating the sky and walls of Bighorn Canyon in southeast Montana. In an area that receives 18-20 inches of rain fall annually, the Bighorn River serves as critical resource for local wildlife. Sponsored by @StellaArtois: With a lack of access to clean water throughout the world, people spend hours each day collecting water for their families, stifling their chances for opportunities such as education and employment. @StellaArtois has partnered with @Water to help raise awareness of the global water crisis in developing countries, and is donating proceeds from the purchase of all limited-edition Chalices to help give clean water to those in need. For each chalice sold, you can help provide 5 years of clean water for a woman and her family in the developing world. A photo posted by National Geographic Travel (@natgeotravel) on
The Photo Society
A collective Instagram account for over 160 National Geographic photographers. Do we wish we were included in the list? Uh – yes. But for now we’re happy just scrolling through their awesome snaps.
Photo @pedromcbride // Excited that my new short film “Martin’s Boat” premiers today at the Wild and Scenic. The film is a memorial about the late, great Martin Litton — a giant in conservation — and his legacy of new and old dories which serve as vehicles to help keep the #grandcanyon wild and dam free. See the trailer in bio link @pedromcbride. #chasingrivers thanks to @oars_rafting
