#SeizeTheSun In Sorrento, Positano And The Amalfi Coast

We have previously mentioned Sean Byrne (@byrnephotography) and Ben Green @bengreenphotography)  as two of the top UK Instagrammers to follow right now.They are notorious for their amazing travel and landscape photography and are well known in a community of photographers and Instagrammers for their stunning shots around the world.

We asked Sean and Ben to take over our Instagram account and be our “eyes” in the sunny south of Italy, capturing shots that sum up that warm and fuzzy feeling we get when we go on holiday. We have created the hashtag #SeizeTheSun for this project, which perfectly describes that feeling of wanting to enjoy of every minute of sunshine we get when we go travelling.

It may have been 10°C in London, but the south of Italy is a fantastic winter sun destination, reaching a lovely 23°C this weekend. Armed with cameras, tripods and their phones, Sean and Ben have made the most of the weather, waking up early every day to capture the sunrise and spending the day on a mission to #SeizeTheSun for @TravelRepublic whilst capturing iconic Mediterranean landscapes.

So far, they have visited a number of cities such as the legendary Positano, the mountaintops of Ravello and stayed at the magnificent 5* Grand Hotel La Pace in Sant’Agnello which is a small town on the border of Sorrento, and one of the most convenient locations to get around the other towns.

Check out some of their shots taken this weekend:

================================ Marina Cantone blessed us with an amazing sunrise, the beach was completely empty at 6:30am so we had the free run of the place! A real sense of being away on holiday whilst watching the sun appear above the water. Nothing quite like watching a new day rise as we #seizethesun for @travelrepublic ================================ Marina Del Cantone, Amalfi Coast, Italy ================================ ================================ #bengreenphotography #allshots_ #big_shotz #capture_today #europe_gallery #global_family #global_hotshotz #ic_landscapes #landscapehunter #worldspotz #ig_europa #earthpix #instasyon #europe_gallery #eclectic_earth #igglobalclub #wonderful_places #top_masters #Beautifuldestinations #exploringtheglobebucketlist #inspring_photography_admired #luxury_freak #pro_IG #jaw_dropping_shots #exploringtheglobe #ig_europe #ourdailyplanet #snapfindr #marvelshots

Such a relaxing feeling sitting on this beach in #Minori #Italy as the sound of waves gentle break onto the sand and the sun starts to set as it disappeared behind the hill. Life doesn't get much better than this. #SeizeTheSun
