Awe-Inspiring Images From Above Will Make You Re-appreciate the World

There’s an Instagram account called Daily Overview, that shows breathtaking images from above to inspire the Overview Effect – “refers to the sensation that astronauts experience when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth from outer space. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once,” their website reads.

Daily Overview hopes that through these photos, we will fully appreciate the beauty of our planet Earth and understand the complexity of the things we’ve developed here on land. The Overviews (what they called these images) focus mainly on the places and human activities that have shaped the landscapes. “we hope you will go beyond the aesthetics, contemplate just exactly what it is that you’re seeing, and consider what that means for our planet.”

Scroll down and be mesmerized by the Overviews.
