The nature of our planet is diverse and unique. Traveling around the planet and taking pictures of nature, you can create amazing beautiful images. Photos of the Earth from space, from a height of more than 700 000 m. not like the usual photos of nature. They are more like paintings by abstract artists.

We present to you the unique photos of the Earth taken from the space satellite Landsat 7. These pictures clearly visible and natural landscapes and creations of human hands. They depict the destruction caused by natural anomalies and the negative consequences of human activity. These images are satellite images of the earth's surface created by transferring visible and infrared data to colors visible to the human eye. Special combinations of ranges and colors were chosen to optimize these gorgeous frames.
