Earth As Art

While this may look like an abstract painting, it’s actually a satellite picture of the Mississippi River meandering through the geometric grids of human farmland. This blog post (https://www.doi.gov/blog/revealing-our-planet-through-earth-art) has plenty of beautiful pictures of earth that help you realize that we live on a massive piece of art.

    These are so beautiful. I know there was a series of books where they painted in the landscapes to depict processes like rainfall. I wonder how much of this is pigmented and how much is the colors picked up by the satellite.
