Top 10 Maine Outdoor Instagram accounts you need to follow

insta

Odds are you have Instagram downloaded on your smartphone. Chances are your feed is filled with photos from friends and family. Let’s liven that up! I’m giving you the down low on the Top 10 Maine Instagram Accounts that you should be following. If you’re reading this, odds are you like outdoor photography, nature and Maine adventures. These Instagram accounts will provide you with daily Maine photos – from the coast to the mountains – all tastefully taken with very creative angles and fresh perspectives. Some of these folks brave the coldest Maine mornings to capture the best sunrises you’ve seen! Heck, now you don’t even have to be up and get out of bed to enjoy a sunrise – let someone else get bundled up, you just need to check your phone! Let’s count them down from #10 to #1 (being my favorite). Here we go…

3. LOBSTAH LADY

My #3 pick is a lady who spends her days close to the ocean and even closer to lobster. If you're a fan of the coast, you'll be a fan of her!

2. SUSANGARVER

Susan is my #2 pick for the array of photos she captures and the skill in which she does so. All stunning - I don't think she's taken a bad photo... ever.
