Bristol on Instagram has been looking sensational recently

Selected by Jess and Jon of the marvelous Bristol Igers account.

1. Mall Gardens by @jaydrphoto

Whether it’s sunny, windy, rainy or grey skies, Clifton is a special place to be with a camera. This outstanding shot by @jaydrphoto demonstrates why and features a beautiful Autumnal scene of the Mall Gardens.

2. By road and by air! by @ninaallwood

Think the balloon season is over? Think again! A sunny morning at Ashton Court was recently lit up with the sight of a launching balloon which created a highly picturesque scene. Fortunately the talented @ninaallwood was on hand to capture the amazing sight and share the great image with Bristol’s Instagram community.

3. Stepping in Bristol by @shua_one

When darkness descends, @shua_one is ready to take on Bristol and capture some of the great sights the city has to offer. Josh has established himself as one of Instagram’s leading night time photographers and it’s not hard to see why with this wonderful picture taken from the top of Sutherland Place in Clifton Down.

4. Just Before The Fog Rolls In by @paulstokes72

clifton-suspension-bridge-in-the-fogThis tranquil morning shot taken by @paulstokes72 features a misty Clifton Suspension Bridge and proved to be particularly popular with the IgersBristol community. “Brilliant”, “wonderful” and “stunning” were just some of the comments received for this excellent picture.

5. Pray For Paris by @dimafrench

The day after the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday 13th November, incredible photographer @dimafrench uploaded this very clever edit of the Clifton Suspension Bridge in tricolour to show support to the French, and very kindly tagged Igers Bristol in his photo. We gladly regrammed his photo to show our own support to our Igers Paris comrades. What happened next was madness…. Local press quickly picked up the image, some neglecting to mention that it was an edit and therefore our bridge wasn’t actually lit red, white and blue, and before long Dima’s image had made it to a hastily compiled Buzzfeed list of Twenty Ways In Which The UK Showed Support To Paris. And then the Mayor Of Paris thanked our own mayor George Ferguson on Twitter. Oooooops. Although my favourite part of the whole debacle were the photos being uploaded to various social media channels by disgruntled Bristolians who’d driven up to the bridge in the rain to see this sight for themselves, only to find that “the bridge ain’t lit in no colours, it’s still just white FFS”.

6. Mirror Maze by @helenisbell

In somewhat nicer news, we hosted our fifth Instameet on Saturday 21st November; our first in collaboration with @universityofbristol and our biggest meet yet. Around one hundred Bristol Instagrammers took part in a tour of three ridiculously photogenic Bristol Uni sites; Wills Memorial Building, the Life Sciences Building and Royal Fort Gardens, the latter being the location for this stunning shot by @helenisbell of the “Follow Me” mirrored labyrinth piece by Jeppe Hein.

7. Good morning! by @daisies_world

Think it’s fair to say that sunlight has been a bit thin on the ground throughout November so any captured glimpses of it have been welcomed warmly at Igers HQ! Daisie is fast proving herself to be a great Bristol Iger with captures such as this one, showing an outline of our beautiful city at dawn.
