Amazing photos and videos of Earth from space. As a lover of maps I am fascinated by aerial and space photos of earth. I love to see where we are in relation to other people and places. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/
Sometimes it takes a very talented photographer to get the great image, sometimes it is simply a matter of “f/8 and be there” and sometimes it is a matter of a great editor selecting from a huge volume of images. In this case it is both being in the right place at the right time and the editor recognizing the best images.
