The Most Beautiful Landscape Photos

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts” – Rachel Carson. If you’ve ever found yourself standing in front of a breathtaking landscape, you’ll know exactly what Carson was talking about. Even those who are not big on exploring the great outdoors have experienced a moment where they had to stop everything just to stare at the scenery before them. Such is the beauty of Earth, that encountering one of these majestic scenes while browsing a photography website has nearly just as strong of an impact as physically being there.

Whether you’re looking for your next travel destination or simply want to rejoice in the magnificence of our planet, these 20 beautiful landscape photos by Wix photographers will render you speechless. And will probably lead you to buy a plane ticket before you make it to the end of this article.

Sometimes, extraordinary places are only appreciated by locals. Siddharta De’s photo shows the exceptional nature of a valley which barely attracts any tourists.

Edge of the Map’s name fits their portfolio perfectly, as this sunset makes us feel as if we’re standing on the last stretch of land as the world ends.

Dolomites, Italy

Pizza, wine, and breathtaking mountains: the three elements of an amazing country. Judging by Vladan Laxa’s photo, the last one might take a bit more preparation than the others.

Adirondack Park, NY, United States

New York City may be known as The Center of the Universe, but there’s so much land worth seeing in the state outside of the Big Apple. Going by Jonathan Zaharek’s photo, this surrounding area’s beauty has no reason to envy the big city.

Venturing outdoors when most people are scared of the weather can reward you with some outstanding views, such as this splendid shot by Erwann Martin.

We dare you to walk to the end of this pier, or to capture the unique character of a river, better than Silvio Birindelli. Hopefully, you own a nice swimsuit.
