Taken from the ISS

So what is it?

It could be a manipulated picture taken in a forest, perhaps. Or part of a fractal, or a coloured ice crystal. Like Esher’s art it facinates me – even though I know what it is. It seems like it might have been taken under a high powered microscope … blood vessels, maybe? It looks surreal, yet is all too real.

But no. It’s none of the above. It was taken by ‘Magisstra‘ (Paolo Nespoli) on the International Space Station and it is the Somalian Desert.

I am a songwriter, and also a writer of wicked fiction. I'm in a writer-centric business, too: creating eBooks, cover design, as well as typesetting for print. I am English - so naturally self-deprecating. ;)
