This week we are looking back at some of the inspiring stories we’ve featured in 2014 from around the Instagram community. Today’s spotlight is on Hawaiian Instagrammer Sarah Lee (@hisarahlee), Texas-based photographer Lauren Marek (@laurenmarek) and National Geographic contributor Joe Riis (@joeriis).
Photographing below the water’s surface, Sarah exposed us to the atmospheric beauty of the underside of breaking waves.
Lauren used tinfoil, a football helmet, a black curtain and her little sister to make a stellar photo for the Weekend Hashtag Project #whpspacedreams.
Joe, a wildlife photographer following the Yellowstone elk migrations, captured the flying embers of his campfire and was selected for The Week on Instagram in July.
