Christmas in Wales

Last week, Apple named Instagram its iPhone App of the Year. Since it is a photo-sharing service, we asked our Crave readers to send in some of their favorite Instagram shots to share, and the response was overwhelming.

Each day this week, we'll be publishing a gallery spotlighting five of our favorite Instagram photos. This is the second set in the series, and it features a water theme. Enjoy!

Luke D. of Wales (Instagram user mrluke) sent in this holiday-card-worthy photo of Wellfield Road in Cardiff, Wales. "I felt the different modes of transport and the low light captured that last-minute rush to get Christmas presents bought!" Luke said. It makes us want to run into the nearest pub and cozy up with a good book and pint.

Snowy day in Winnipeg

Adrian S. of Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada (Instagram user adrianjkshum) captured this photo on what he calls a mild Sunday morning (looks pretty cold to us). "It was snowing big fluffy snowflakes. The snowflakes were piling up neatly on my car's windshield and I had to capture the beauty of it all before brushing it away and going about my day," he said.

Adrian was able to get a close-up of the snowflakes using the Olloclip macro lens and enhanced the photo using Snapseed.

Bubble bath

Stephen K. (Instagram user skphoto) of Ann Arbor, Mich., loves taking pictures of his 5-year-old daughter Violet. "She is quite photogenic and when I catch her in a candid moment, she is something else," Stephen said. We couldn't agree more. This photo was taken using the Walden filter.

Golden Gate Bridge

Greg S. of Ohio (Instagram user dzeek) used to travel to San Francisco frequently for work, but it had been a few years since his last visit. So on a recent vacation he decided to again check out some of the local landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge.

"Sort of funny that the last time I was out there, 2002, I was shooting film, so it was fun getting pictures in the Digital Age," he said. This photo was taken on November 12 with no filter.
