Fall Foliage Captions

When photographing among smoldering hues of red, orange, and yellow, it may seem like a caption isn’t even necessary, but we can assure you that a good one will absolutely boost your photo's popularity. Plays-on-words and simple, concise descriptions of color are sure ways to up your likes — and don’t be afraid to throw a leaf or tree emoji in there.


A smattering.

May the forest be with you.
