The Photography of Douglas Wheelock, Astronaut

Douglas Wheelock is an excellent photographer. He also happens to be an astronaut. For the past few months, he’s been tweeting photos of his mission to the ISS. via TriggerPit:

On September 22, 2010, with the departure of the Expedition 23 crew, Colonel Douglas H. Wheelock assumed command of the International Space Station and the Expedition 25 crew. He is also known as @Astro_Wheels on twitter, where he has been tweeting pictures to his followers since he arrived at the space station. We thought that we should put some of them together as a tribute to him and the whole ISS crew. The images bring breathtaking views from our only off planet Vista point. The following pictures are all visible on Astro_Wheels’ twitpic account and for these we are eternally grateful to him for sharing these with the world. The captions are all his own words.

This is one is my favorite. It’s just… perfect!

Wheelock writes of this photo:

Out over the central Atlantic, just before another spectacular sunset, with the spiral bands of Hurricane Earl visible in the setting sun. An interesting view of the life-giving energy of our sun. The solar arrays on the port side of the Space Station as well as Hurricane Earl…both gathering the last bit of energy before they fall into eclipse (8-30-2010).

Wow!

Check out his TwitPic gallery here for more great photos.
