Turn That Frown Upside-Down With These #HappyPlace Pics

Everyone's got a #HappyPlace. It could be close to home or worlds away. Perhaps it's isolated...or inundated with noise, people, and activity. You'll know it when you get there — and when you do, we hope you'll stay awhile.

This month, we teamed up with the photo community PicsArt and asked shutterbugs to share snaps of their #HappyPlace for a chance to win a Leica C digital camera. Click through to see the the big winner and five runners-up. Warning: These stunning photos will give you a serious case of wanderlust.
