Stunning photos of earth taken from ISS

The crew of the International Space Station (ISS) Expedition 40 are locked in an unofficial competition to produce the most stunning pictures of Earth from orbit. More than 1.3 million photos have been taken from the ISS since the first module reached the low orbit – about 400 km from the Earth’s surface – in 2000, but the current crop of astronauts, who include three first-timers out of the six-strong team, are particularly talented photographers, RT reported Sunday.
Baltimore native Reid Wiseman has been obsessively documenting every day of the mission, flooding the social media with dozens of pictures every week since his arrival at the ISS in late May.
