18 Captions For Sunrise Pictures That'll Make Those Dreamy Moments Last Forever

If you're able to part ways with your bed early enough, you'll get a glimpse of one of Mother Nature's beautiful gifts: a sunrise. This is truly one of the most magnificent sights to see. The sky fills with vibrant, warm colors as the world begins to wake up to a brand new day. If you're able to view this firsthand, you know you need to capture the show in the sky and post a pic to Instagram with some captions for sunrise pictures.

I'll admit, most of my sunrise experiences have come from staying up all night for a study session, or traveling on red eye flights home, but there's something so dreamy about waking up early with a cup of coffee in hand, and starting a brand new day with such a gorgeous sight. As the sun starts peeking its head over the horizon, it's basically saying, "good morning" to you.

The world around you embraces the new day, and you'll see people running along the beach or heading out for an early breakfast. It's a magical time, and must be documented with a great pic for the 'Gram. Sunrises only last for a bit, and you don't want to take your eyes away for too long, so use these 18 sunrise captions to post right away.
