David Finell submits Commander Chris Hadfield

Commander Chris Hadfield quite literally and figuratively takes photography to new heights. Photographers have always found art in the use of different perspectives.  Some have climbed everything from stairways to mountains and have dived the depths of the oceans and spelunked down the great caverns of the earth to achieve their breathtaking imagery.  But commander Hadfield is among the rarified few that have such a lofty perspective that the great architecture of the renaissance is nearly indecernable.  His perspective is aboard the International Space Station (ISS).  His photography embraces this unique perspective and opportunity to consistently showcase this wondrous planet that we traverse the galaxy on called Earth.  The cloud formations above storms show structures seldom seen.  But most of all, the earth tones that figure so prominently in his imagery reminds us what a special place we have and that we shouldn't take it for granted.  Please take the time to explore his work, here and elsewhere.  It is truly impressive.  Is imagery can be viewed at http://colchrishadfield.tumblr.com
