A fish-eye camera view from the Cupola of the International Space Station shows a gorgeous view of Earth from space. Visible are parts of the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea, as well as the southern portion of the Florida peninsula, including the elongated metropolitan Miami area, Lake Okeechobee and the Florida Keys. This was taken by one of the Expedition 25 crew members on the ISS, from about 350 km (220 miles) above Earth. A 16mm f/2.8D lens gives this image a circular, fish-eye effect.
