Instagram the photo-sharing phone application released on Monday the top 10 most popular places in New Zealand to share photos from, based on the number of images geo-tagged to specific locations.

Lake Tekapo won the top spot in 2016, slipping to third place in 2017. Aoraki/Mt Cook was fifth and Lake Pukaki 10th this year. The top spot was earned by the Milford Sound in Fiordland.
