More than one thing, but generally speaking the way some authors use words is so utterly breathtaking
Spoiler:Show"The jagged mountains were pure blue in the dawn and everywhere birds twittered and the sun when it rose caught the moon in the west so that they lay opposed to each other across the earth, the sun whitehot and the moon a pale replica, as if they were the ends of a common bore beyond whose terminals burned worlds past all reckoning."Spoiler:Show"I have heard the languages of apocalypse, and now I shall embrace the silence."Spoiler:Show"Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery."Spoiler:Show“Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita. Did she have a precursor? She did, indeed she did. In point of fact, there might have been no Lolita at all had I not loved, one summer, an initial girl-child. In a princedom by the sea. Oh when? About as many years before Lolita was born as my age was that summer. You can always count on a murderer for a fancy prose style. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, exhibit number one is what the seraphs, the misinformed, simple, noble-winged seraphs, envied. Look at this tangle of thorns.”

I've been to Capel Curig too! It was lovely :3 Need to go again tbh.
Yes I've done wild camping! Last time I went to Snowdonia it was next to a river and a mountain in the distance

I really don't think there can be anything as beautiful as pictures of galaxies and stars in all their amazing glory. Or a starfilled night sky if pictures dont count.
However that's too obvious so I think that to most men the three most beautiful things they see in their lives are,
Their first football pitch at a top class game especially a floodlit game
The first female breast that isn't their mothers
Their first newborn child
