Some amazing perspectives you just can't get from satpics.

Michael,

They are absolutely spectacular!

Could you perhaps include one or two of the best pictures attached on here! It deserves some attention.

Regards,

The first attachment is Hurricane Felix. I like the angle and the display of cumulonimbus around the storm. The second is Hurricane Ivan - the image showing part of the ISS makes it an amazing space scene.
