Aboard the International Space Station, Dutch astronaut André Kuipers has taken some amazingly detailed photos of the Earth using a handheld Nikon D2Xs digital SLR camera.

The amatuer photographer captures some beautiful shots of our planet, and has an eye for interesting patterns that can only be seen from afar.
Take a look at some of his shots. You can also see more on his Flickr photostream.
