Syrian Desert. Image taken 11/6/2000 by Landsat 7. Between the fertile Euphrates River valley and the cultivated lands of the eastern Mediterranean coast, the Syrian Desert covers parts of modern Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq.

View the planet through photos taken by the Landsat-7 satellite - and most recently, the Terra Satellite's Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER). These images are beautiful and as abstract as you can get, while being totally real. They are also available at high enough resolution to use as backgrounds for print applications or as art in and of themselves.
