A few weeks ago I spent an hour in Google Earth collecting a set of images that struck me as beautiful or fascinating. I could seriously do that for hours...days, even. It felt much like doing photography, only virtually. It boggles the mind to imagine all the beauty of our planet at every scale. Some of my favourite finds: delta near Portland, BC's coastal mountains, farmland in California, and the Pembina Hills near Walhalla, ND. None of these are as cool as the stuff NASA's been seeing, though: Earth, Observed.
