The technique is seemingly simple: Focus, Frame, and Fire. The size of the camera, however, is simply intimidating. ISS Commander and now photographer Chris Hadfield uses these skills and equipment when taking pictures of our home for us humans back on the ground. From the Sahara to the sun glinting off of rivers and lakes, Hadfield has enamored crowds of online viewers by capturing stunning scenes of our planet from above. These photographs are a beautiful reminder that our environment is part of a much larger system and definitely help us further understand exactly what it means to be human.
