Inside the ISS “cupola”, the space observatory where astronauts shoot pictures also to Earth

All macro pictures shot with hand-held D800 and 16-35 mm f/4. Although the 16-35 mm is a wide-angle, it can be used to shoot close-up details thanks to the minimal focusing distance of 29 cm, with a max. magnification ratio 1:4
