NASA has made a collection of their satellite images that I regularly check out on their website (click on above image to get there). And I cannot help but to find some of the images really beautiful. Inspired by an article I read in New York Times that used an image of the oil spill off the coast of Alabama that looked pretty awesome, I decided to waste some time playing with NASA satellite images using GIMP. Just for fun.
So, since I like blue, I went to see what I could do with this image taken on the 27th of June 2010. (Geographical names on the image below will tell you the whereabouts)
Before i show you the blue versions, here is the 'oil industry in the US is OLD' kind of look where I enhanced the contrasts.
And here are the blue versions:
Finally the last
Like I said, there is no science in this. Just looking at the disaster from a different perspective.
