Every week, we ask our Instagram followers to share their view of Montreal with us through a series of themes. This week’s challenge focused on light and sunshine since it's becoming increasingly present in our lives with Spring on the way. This capture by @tallistepics is a pretty witty take on the challenge. Tens of thousands of photos have been tagged as part of the weekly photography challenge since it started in 2011. Join us next week on Instagram at @montrealgazette for a new theme.

@dhimbert had some fun with that sky! Wow! Thanks for sharing.

Little late on the sharing for this week's light-focused Instagram challenge. This one's by @alaincarrir! One hour left to share your photos. Go ahead :)

Can you make a bright light the focus of your photos while conveying an interesting perspective? This week's Instagram Friday challenge is all about that. Tag your photos with #mtlfriday_light before 4 p.m. Friday and we'll publish our favourite in the Saturday print edition of Montreal Gazette.

Every week, we ask our Instagram followers to take part in a photo challenge and show us a slice of Montreal as they see it. We're probably all due for a bit of greenery and sunshine (it's on its way!) but we wanted to see what you could do with "green" as a subject. @eva_budnik shared this splendid macro shot that is so delicate and sweet it was impossible to pass. Tens of thousands of photos have been submitted to the #mtlfriday challenge since it began in 2011. Join us at @montrealgazette next week for a new theme.

@mathieujarryphoto shared this capture for #mtlfriday_green and we're loving it. Keep tagging! Deadline is 4 pm

@amanda__holt gave us this dose of green energy for this week's #mtlfriday_green challenge. Come on, make green the main focus of your photo and tag it!

We're on a quest for some greenery for this week's Instagram photo challenge. Not only is leafy green the colour of 2017, but we also don't see much of it these days. Play around with the colour and see how you can make it the subject of your photos. Tag said captured with #mtlfriday_green. Our favourite photo will be published in the Saturday print edition of Montreal Gazette. Deadline is at 4 p.m. Friday. 🌱🌿🍃🍀
