If you thought the likes of Twin Peaks, Utopia and Breaking Bad were the peak of beautiful televisual cinematography, prepare to think again.

Because, thanks to the good work of the Scenic Simpsons Instagram page, it’s suddenly become clear that, throughout its 28 seasons, The Simpsons has provided some truly beautiful scene-setting shots.

The project is dedicated “to showcasing the most beautiful scenes, colours, sets and abstract compositions from The Simpsons, and it does not disappoint, with sweeping vistas, poignant close-ups, and arty shots nestled in amongst the mayhem and stories that grabbed our attention on first viewing.

Our favourite 19 shots are below, head here to view the full selection. You’ll never look at Springfield the same way again.
