This space image of the Sahara feels more painting than photographS

I'm loving these photos at an oblique angle from the International Space Station. Most Earth photos from space look so flat, but these have such a three-dimensional quality. This one in particular, showing clouds over the Western Sahara Desert also feels painted with delicate brushstrokes, thanks to the lighting and the surface's palette and textures.
