Some of the most beautiful and interesting satellite images of 2019 (part 1)


  • Administrator

    The post Some of the most beautiful and interesting satellite images of 2019 I processed was originally posted at Pierre Markuse's blog.

    Just like last year and the year before I will again recap this year with a selection of the more beautiful or interesting satellite images I processed.

    The selection is rather big this year, but there were many good and interesting satellite images to choose from. Aside from this selection, you can find all my images in full resolution here on my Flickr.

    So let’s get started: You can click each image to enlarge it somewhat for a quick view, however, the full-resolution and quality images are available for download at the Flickr-link provided in each image description in case you want to use the image somewhere and I encourage you to use those, as they look much better in most cases.
