Canadian astronaut, Chris Hadfield currently on board the International Space Station has tweeted photographs of the Lake District and Morecambe Bay from space!
Commander Chris Hadfield, who is a flight engineer currently on Expedition 34 on board ISS, has gained popularity on Twitter by sharing stunning photography of space. Many of which are his views of Earth as the International Space Station orbits Earth at over 17,000mph.
The aerial photos of the English coast include; Morecambe Bay, the largest expanse of flats and sand in the United Kingdom; and the Lake District, Cumbria, with its snow topped peaks made famous by Alfred Wainwright with his Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells.
Here at English Lakes we love to show off the beauty of the local area we have the pleasure of living and working in, and when we saw Chris’ photos from space this occasion was no exception. We agree with Chris, the Lake District is “picturesque from any altitude”.
