The Ultimate Photo Shoot Location

Photographers often go to exotic locations for unbelievable situations to see never before seen areas of the world to get that one perfect shot. It's a constant search of trying to outdo yourself to capture something new. But sorry, you can go to the ends of the world and not outdo NASA Astronaut Chris Cassidy. This shot from space is beautiful.

Cassidy, an Expedition 36 flight engineer, is captured here using a 400mm lens to photograph Earth from the ISS. He's not photographing a supermodel in a bikini in Antarctica or snapping innocents in war-torn Sudan, he's taking a picture of Earth—which is 250 miles below him—from inside the Cupola observatory module on the ISS. Fantastic. [@NASAGoddard, Image Credit: NASA]
