Cupola Desktop [COMPOSITE IMAGE]

Desktop background courtesy of me having trouble sleeping several nights ago. Photo is a composite image utilizing the following -- the background (the view "out the cupola windows") is from Expedition 30 and is of the Sinai Peninsula, Red Sea, Nile River Delta, Gulf of Suez & Gulf of Aqaba [ISS030-E-5328] & the foreground (cupola itself) is from an image taken during Expedition 22 [ISS022-E-66972]. I meshed the two because I wanted to enjoy a "blue Earth" view through the cupola windows on my desktop, and it was faster to make it than find the perfect image in Astronaut Photography of the Earth.
