What Made This a Photo of the Day

The vantage point afforded by aerial photography is particularly compelling when patterns like these are revealed. For a moment, you wonder whether you're seeing a macro view of a river reaching into the barrenness of the desert or a micro view of the arteries in a living creature. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
