I run an Instagram feature account called Worldwide Color. Every day, I repost three photos that highlight one color, rotating through rainbow every eight days. I love seeing the pictures other Instagrammers send me for a feature, and the feed is turning out to be one of my favorite digital “projects.” Keep reading to see the Instagram’s most colorful travel photos.


This perfect shot of a red butterfly on a red flower seems like it was made just for this feed. It’s not only gorgeous, but it was also taken during one of my favorite festivals at one of my favorite places: The Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot! You’ll never see the park prettier than it is during this time of year when it’s adorned with an unimaginable amount of flowers and topiaries. Be sure to follow @royalcaribbeangirl on Instagram for more great photos.

Other top red photos were of an intricately painted red building in Germany by @grenzenlos_frei and a cute red scooters in Rome, Italy by @brooke.ayton.


You might ask what’s so amazing about a hot air balloon ride. I’d like to quote Peter Pan here and say, all the world is made of faith, and trust and pixie dust. When you are up there, floating, as though on a cloud, watching the sun slowly making it’s way up the sky, lighting up everything under it, you have reason for a bit more faith, some more trust and belief in a lot more pixie dust. Could there be a better reason to do something? Magic is the word for it. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #travelwriter #travel #instatravel #travelgram #travelblogger #wanderlust #ilovetravel #instavacation #postcardsfromtheworld #travelling⠀ #traveltheworld #igtravel #travelblog #travelpics #wanderer #mytravelgram #ig_worldclub #worldcaptures #worldplaces #traveler #nofilter #instagood #potd #TLPicks #colorfulfocus #nomadsofindia #experienceegypt #sunrise #naturelovers #tripwears

There were two excellent orange photos that I was deciding between for the top spot in July, and while it was a tough call, this one won out. I love the silhouette of the hot air balloon over Luxor, Egypt, and it really brings life to this sunset shot. Follow @tripwears on Instagram and Facebook, and check out their blog, Trip Wears.

Other top orange photos were of Canyon X in Page, Arizona by @go_on_adventures and another orange sunset over the famous Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina by @aether.element.concept.


I have another Epcot picture (this one shamelessly taken by me) as my favorite yellow. I love the little fountain you pass as you enter the park, and Spaceship Earth’s triangular panels make for a unique reflection on its perfectly still waters. You’re already on my blog if you’re reading this, but check out my main Instagram, @nomadbytrade, Twitter, and Facebook.

Other top yellow pictures were of a brightly colored building in Colombia by @coco_boss and a beautifully detailed close-up of a sunflower by @waterunderthebridges.


Possibly the most beautiful place I’ve ever been

A post shared by Brian Johnson || Solo Travel (@brianjohnzon) on

Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia has been on my bucket list since I first saw photos of it years ago. I love this lush green shot by @brianjohnzon. Follow him on Instagram and check out his blog, Leather Backpacker.

Other top green photos were of a beautiful green plant in Oregon by @adventureswithnienie and tea fields in Malaysia by @travelingspud.


This aerial shot of the famous Heart Reef in Australia is gorgeous! It’s perfectly framed against the turquoise waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Follow @taylorstracks on Instagram and check out her blog, Taylor’s Tracks.

Other top turquoise pictures included a Vanuatu beach by regular contributor @pacifiquegirl and the stunningly beautiful Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada by @sweetcarolinaj.


“There’s some sort of famous tower in Paris. I have to say, it’s not exactly an original idea design. I’ve seen a lot of knock-knacks on clearance at Home Goods that look awfully similar.” -Sarah del Rio • • The Eiffel Tower was constructed between 1887 and 1889 as part of the 1889 World Fair. At 1,063 feet tall, it became the tallest man made structure in the world. The tower was built by Gustave Eiffel and his company. In 2015, almost 7 million people made it to the top. • • • #paris #parisian #eiffeltower #eiffel #tower #gustaveeiffel #architecture #architectureporn #architecturelover #architecturephotography #travel #travelpic #traveller #travelgram #travelshoteu #worldwidecolor #worldfair #instatravel #sister #france #hostelsisters

I firmly believe that Paris is better at night, and this Eiffel Tower shot only furthers that belief. The Tower is especially beautiful when lit up, and those deep blue skies above it really highlight the iconic landmark. Follow @hostelsisters for more great photos.

Other top blues this month were of beautiful blue lake in Nicaragua by @dom1n1ka.hu and hazy skies over Chicago, Illinois by @ohyasmintravels.


Capturing lighting is a difficult feat. This dramatic shot of it streaking through purple skies over Calcutta, India is incredible. Follow @sanjiban_ghosh for more phenomenal photos.

Other top purple photos this month included a dreamy shot of Crete, Greece by @verislav and a starry night sky over Mount Fitz Roy in Argentina by @brianwyang.


How did I spend my night last night? • Warning: Long caption ahead ⚠️ So as part of wanting to venture outside of our comfort zones during this trip, @sandeepkrana and I decided that we would start picking up hitch hikers when we could as a way of doing a nice thing but also to meet new people and hear about their lives/experiences. Yesterday we met Jessica (originally from Portugal 🇵🇹) and Anderson (originally from Angola 🇦🇴), two very free spirited people, who had previously been living on the Canary Islands 🇮🇨 doing community work and now traveling their way through Europe and the world 🌎. They travel with very minimal belongings, and by day, they roam around cities and towns with their bags stored in secret places and at night, they camp out wherever they find a nice spot. Sandy and I had spoken about doing the same before we had left on our trip and also a few times since starting it but we never actually committed to it. After meeting Jessica and Anderson, we were both left feeling totally inspired and motivated 🌟. So what did we do next? Well, naturally we drove straight to the closest camping store and bought ourselves a tent! ⛺️ And last night, we spent our first night camping along the south coast of France in beautiful Istres and got to wake up to this incredible sunrise 🌅💗💜

This bright pink sunset over Istres, France is stunning. It would be incredible to witness skies that bright in person. Follow @daniishifman for more great pictures.

Other top pink photos this month included pink sunset skies over Istanbul, Turkey by @dreamsinheels and another pink sunset over the beach in France by @photoslascars.
