Earth as Art

In this Kim Komando recommended presentation are a series of amazingly gorgeous slides of earth taken by satellite and space shuttle, set to music. Looking every bit like abstract art, this presentation is impressive. At the end, a blurb offers to sell you a longer presentation, but doesn't push it.

Turn on your sound.

Amazing Pris! Thanks for passing it on, as I never would have found it on my own. My mom is a quilter, and I recommended it to her, the colors and shapes are astounding and she loves quilts that incorporate that sort of thing. What an amazing planet we live on, huh?

We really do. These shots blew me away.

Mouse, When I was waiting in my urologist's office yesterday, I saw three framed prints on his wall that had that same absract qualtiy. Turned out they were shots he took when diving, but he'd done them with micrlenses in some cases and they had that same beautiful surreal quality. They weren't easily identifiable photos of coral or underground growth. And they were stunning.

It is a fine thing to be a human being who can see the beauty of nature in all things. When I was in University taking Fine Arts, I had a theme going about inner space being so akin to outer space. It made for a lot of material for me to work with. I had a thing going for reflections also, which is probably why I am so drawn to your space!

Hi mouse
I've seen some inner body microscopic photos, too. They're amazing.
