Introducing the #Waterlust Photo Challenge

We love summer. Is it obvious?

We’ve already celebrated summertime classics like #goldenhour and #hiking. And so it’s only natural to share some love with summer’s #1 feature: water!

In summer all over the world, people turn to lakes, rivers, oceans, seas, ponds, streams, and waterfalls to cool down and have some fun in the sun. The joy of spending time in the water is something we call “waterlust,” and it’s the focus of our latest photo challenge!

Last week we ended our latest Trover photography challenge, which was all about #GoldenHour. Between May 24th and June 10th, we received over 4,500 entries from 132 countries, making it one of our most successful photo challenges ever!

Thank you to everyone who participated by sharing your photos of the most glorious moments of golden sunlight as seen across the world. We had so many favorites, but ultimately there could only be one winner. To help us choose, we enlisted the help of your peer and legendary Trover, Kristin Repsher.
