photoblog image Earthbelow #1

Earthbelow #1

 

From time to time, I plan to present images taken by astronauts on the International Space Station, on orbit for 20 years now. I have manipulated the image in GIMP 2.10., significantly darkening it and adding contrast. The astronaut-photographer, whose name I wish I knew, took this with an 800mm lens.

Kinda cool.... It looks like wood. Do we know where or what this is?
Larry Bliss: I got so excited by the picture I forgot to note its location...

Quite a sight Larry. I look forward to more of these images.
Larry Bliss: I will do them from time to time...
It would be interesting to know where it is, its intriguing, Larry.
Larry Bliss: I have another one coming up in a while, and it has location information.
Do you know where it is?
Larry Bliss: I couldn't find out, alas...

Somewhere in the Middle East - but what would I know smile To me it looks like mountains scarred by quarrying or mining.
Larry Bliss: A good possibility

Could that be a crater?
Larry Bliss: It's possible. Very hard to tell from orbit, I have heard.
