Col. Chris Hadfield is a Canadian astronaut living on the International Space Station. I started following him on twitter because my daughter is studying Sally Ride in school. He posts cool stuff like the kind of food he eats and how his watch floats around his wrist.


The past few days, though, he has been posting some phenomenal photos of earth. They almost look like paintings and are beautiful displays of color and texture.


If you’re the kind of person who looks to the world around you for inspiration, you should definitely be following him on twitter. His photos are posted on a tumblr blog, as well. In case you were wondering, the images above are of Mumbai, India; The Bahamas; and The Australian Outback.
