High altitude photography.
« on: July 09, 2011, 04:19:09 PM »
In this months Digital Camera mag I came across an article about an amateur photographer called Paolo Nespoli.He is Italian and is an astronaut.He has spent six months on the International Space Station and has taken 100,000 photos from space.If you log onto his Flickr account you will see a selection of his work. www.flickr.com/photos/magisstra.  There are some truly some amazing photos here.Well worth a look. 8)

I like the Grand Canyon shot best. It really looks like a scar.  :tup:

I went up in a microlight aircraft & took photos of my town from about 1,000 ft, does that count?

Just had a look at your blog Cathus,a nice little selection you have there. Particularly like the motorway shot and the landing shot--nice propeller action and the shadow of the plane.I presume your house is the biggest in the photo!!!! :D

I must agree with that! The last shot in particular is quite superb.
