Earth globe Our Beautiful Planet

These pictures by Nick Strobel of locations in the western United States and central/eastern Australia give a taste of the beauty on our home planet. These pictures are copyrighted by Nick Strobel. You may use these pictures if you clearly and explicitly cite my authorship of the images and show how to get to my website at www.astronomynotes.com. If you want to use any of these pictures in any sort of publication, please contact me for permission and I may have a higher resolution version suitable for printing.

This photo album section will be undergoing a revision of structure in which pictures will be grouped by location. So for example, all of the pictures from Grand Canyon will be grouped together. This is because the number of photo thumbnails on these album starting pages is getting so large to make the pages a bit unwieldy to download.

This page has links to Land Formations picture sets. Another page has links to Streams and Life and Flowers & Animals (Insects). To celebrate the coming of spring when the hills of Kern County are alive with the sight of flowers, see my Kern County Spring page. Finally, something from the north country: Aurorae.

Select the thumbnail picture to bring up a webpage with a larger version. The size of the image on the webpage with a larger version is given so you know how long it will take to download the page.
