Modern Art?

These images look to be some new impressionistic artist. But au contraire mon frere, these are actual satellite photos of our beautiful Mother Earth.

From The Independent: NASA has a wonderful collection of photographs of planet Earth taken by satellites circling the atmosphere.

The beguiling pictures are not of the familiar watery globe which usually represents our world.

They are instead vast landscapes, deserts, oceans and mountain ranges snapped from so far away that they resemble artistic daubings and not familiar landmarks.

You can view more at the Our Earth As Art NASA page.
