down to earth

we live on an outrageously beautiful planet. from the tiniest microorganism to the gorgeous alluvial fans of rivers emptying into the ocean. proof arrives all the time in the form of stunning landsat images like these (courtesy of "jeff").

malaspina glacier, alaska.

australia's great sandy desert.

tarpum bay southwest of eleuthera island , bahamas.
