Let's be real — in the summertime, many of us are feelin' in our prime. The sunshine and blue skies put you on a natural high, and we all have a little more pep in our step as we're hitting up a pool party or barbecue with friends. Summer is the definition of living our best lives, and a lot of that comes from the natural beauty surrounding us. The sunrises, sunsets, waterfalls, and sandy beaches we gaze at have such a glow you'll want to capture, so you'll need some captions for summer no filter pics you take.

When you stumble upon a no-filter picture without even trying, it feels like you've slayed the Instagram game, so take the moment to brag. There are no special effects added in this pic — and your excellent camera skills are also to thank for that, of course.
