* The original pullback-into-the vastness-of-space short film ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fKBhvDjuy0 Powers Of Ten]]'', starting with a couple lying on a blanket in a park and pulling away until our entire galaxy is just a speck of light - then coming back, and zooming in to the atomic level.

* A more localized version in ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', where Rapunzel is awestruck by the nature around her after she finally leaves the tower for the first time in 18 years.
--> '''Rapunzel''': ''"Just smell the grass, the dirt, just like I dreamed they'd be. Just feel that summer breeze, the way it's calling me."''

* The ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'' fanfic "Heaven's Conscripts" opens with Rico sitting halfway up a cliff, looking out over the Italian Dolomites. She assumes that she's looking at the Heaven that she's always been told about.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'', the moment one heads out of Gahreesan's opening tower, they're treated to a lush, tropical environment which simply looks ''huge''. One can bask in the ambience for quite a while. Ahnonay gets this treatment too, even once one's figured it out.

* ''VideoGame/{{Grandia}}'': It and it's sequels had some pretty awesome moments, most notably in the first one. After Justin and his companions scale the massive wall known as the End of the World that many people in the west believe there is nothing beyond, the party and the player are treated to the gorgeous view of the Valley of the Flying Dragon and the rest of the Lost World beyond it. [[spoiler:They are then nabbed by a flying robot and dropped off of said massive wall.]]

* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', being all about exploring and settling a new galaxy, takes it to the franchise's stunning extreme. No matter where the ''Tempest'' makes planetfall, be it desert, glacier or jungle - once you've brought the respective world's Remnant Vault back online, everything that follows is pure unadulterated SceneryPorn. Your squad mates, even the most indifferent ones, are well aware of it and will often comment on how awesomely beautiful their new home is (as long as no ScaryDogmaticAliens are shooting at them). How your PlayerCharacter reacts depends on how you play them; primarily choosing the emotional dialogue options will net you a Ryder who lives and breathes this trope all day long. The game's next-gen graphics really shine here, and nobody would blame you for taking a break from pathfinding, climbing to the map's highest point and just marvelling at the sight.

* A good portion of ''{{Okami}}'', such as just running around in Shinsu field with the sound of wind rushing by. Or Hana Valley. Or Ryoshima Coast. [[SceneryPorn Or...]]

* In ''TheLostCrown: A Ghost-Hunting Adventure'', all scenes are all black-and-white (or green-and-white, for the night-vision camera), with occasional colored objects for contrast. Likewise, the weather is cloudy, drab and glum for the first few in-game days of play. At most, you might expect a little color if Nigel's walking past a flower garden ... and then, when you get to May Day morning, the sky clears up and it's suddenly a ''brilliant'', rich blue.

* In the TabletopGames/Warhammer40k novel ''Malleus'', Eisenhorn describes being part of a parade celebrating the end of an Imperial Crusade. The author lovingly describes the scale of the city and the audience, including such details as an archway to huge, even a massive Titan could walk under it without ducking.

** Played straight when an elf girl takes Cutter to the top of a cliff so he can see the ocean for the first time. Awestruck, all he can say is "Could I be alone for a little while?". This is followed by several panels of the scene pulling back as he stares, awestruck, at the immensity of the sea.

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', experienced briefly by John as he looks out of his 10th-floor hotel window at the city of Tevri'ed spread out below. The city is so much different than anything he's seen before on C'hou, and so interesting, that he feels thrilled and excited to be back on the planet. Sadly, [[spoiler: it isn't long before he discovers what a CrapsaccharineWorld C'hou has become.]]
