“hey, take my picture here?” taehyung asks, already bounding off to the railing of the lumber walkway and snapping a few deliberate shots of his own. he turns and settles into place so the scenic view of the mountain and its cascading waterfall is artfully situated behind him. jungkook pops the cap off of his lens like a second nature and adjusts the camera’s settings to combat the bright, blaring rays of sunlight that have chosen to make an appearance after several days of stubborn overcast. he glances up from the apparatus and the other man is already smiling back at him, toothy and eager. jungkook’s heart flutters at a speed of approximately 1/1000th of a second and he thinks that the sun has some serious competition.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPnaturalbeauty

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post every week announcing the latest project.

Our planet is a timeless source of discovery, wonder and inspiration. This weekend, let’s celebrate Earth’s beauty. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Spend time in a majestic landscape. Mountains, beaches, plains, forests — our land is diverse and grand, and it would take lifetimes to experience it all. How much can you capture within the frame of one photograph or video? Look for action and movement within the larger scene.
  • Focus on the smaller details. Our planet may be vast, but there are millions of tiny, beautiful moments playing out in front of us every day: a blooming flower pushing through the cracks in the sidewalk, a trickle of water feeding a small pool in the forest or a tree swaying gently in the breeze.
  • Keep an eye out for how nature weaves its way into man-made scenes. City and country alike have their own elements of natural beauty.

PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPnaturalbeauty hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
