Things look great from far away

I recently went on a trip back to my home city of Christchurch in New Zealand and everything was as i remember it. 2 weeks later the 2nd biggest earthquake NZ has ever seen struck the land and the hearts of my friends and family.

On a lighter note, look how beautiful it looks from space. NASA Colonel Douglas Wheelock, based on the International Space Station, claims to be the first space based twitterer and has specialised in turning out the kind of landscapes only astronauts can come up with.

He posted this picture 2 days ago not knowing the devastation that really lay below.
