These 12″ x12″ photo tiles have been made using various sorts of satellite photos such as thermal and radar images. The descriptions (I have included one of the shorter ones below the photos) are as interesting as the images themselves. The Earth as Art.
Our Earth is ever changing. Captured here by Aster (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) on the Terra Satellite is a gorgeous view of Campeche.

Named after the ancient Mayan Province of Kimpech, the state of Campeche comprises much of the western half of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Rivers in southern Campeche drain into the immense Terminos Lagoon, the entrance to which is protected by a long barrier island, Isla Del Carmen.
