Col. Chris Hadfield: One straight human line drawn onto incredibly rough terrain. - 150th Comments

[nietsnreb alerac asor] - A massive oyster shell after the meat has been slurped off the shell. Breathtaking.
[yksnyhcarvah ayneg] - In tone, pattern, and mood, it resembles the work of a few Russian artists who post on Facebook. Hmmm. At first glance, I mistook your photo for one of their paintings. You have such a good eye for beauty.
[yhprum yak] - Is it the Great Wall? (it's the only straight line cut into rough terrain I can think of).
[etniopal enahpets] - It look like an old piece of wood!!! Wow...
