Generally our photos of the day do not feature a human element, but this inspired image taken by Kelly Meehan found its way into our Flickr photo pool and we just couldn't resist. Aside from just being straight-up beautiful to look at it, it's also a wonderful illustration of the joy that nature can inspire. Kelly writes: 'I don’t leap for the landing, I leap for the experience through the air.' -Brene Brown When the sky meets the ocean it makes such a beautiful canvas for reflective photography.
