Sometimes, nature stops you dead in your tracks, and you find yourself taking a moment to appreciate the spectacular views in front of you. It could be an amazing sunset while you're hiking up a mountain, or a fresh patch of wildflowers in a field you're driving by. With something that beautiful, you know it's one of those "take a picture, it'll last longer" moments. This's a #NoFilter needed pic, but a caption is still necessary when you want to post on the 'Gram. That's why you need some scenery captions for Instagram to keep handy.
Believe me, I've been there when the views completely take your breath away. When I went zip-lining through the rainforest in Alaska, I was zooming past trees and waterfalls. You'd think that would be the ultimate view, but it was actually waiting for our bus when I absolutely fell in love. I found myself in between two large snowy mountains surrounded by nature, and I just had to get a picture to remember how happy it made me.
Coming up with the right thing to say in that moment was almost impossible, so to make it easier for you, I've assembled these 30 scenery captions for you to plug in when the time comes. They'll be especially perfect for your next camping trip, beach getaway, or a random Tuesday when the skyline is perfect shades of orange and pink, and you know you need to capture it.
