Commander Chris Hadfield has been tweeting photos from the International Space Station for months now, and many of his images are utterly gorgeous. Like this one, of a Bolivian lake whose shoreline looks like what Hadfield called "dinosaur teeth." What do you think are the most photogenic features of Earth from space?

My favorite view of Earth from space is the Apollo 8 Earthrise shot. I can't even imagine what seeing the Earth like that with your own eyes would be like (but I'd love to find out). Just the picture puts some perspective on things. It's a reminder that we're all in this together on this one blue marble.
