Far, Far away... - TIMOTHY COX

This is a gallery of gorgeous art work showcasing the natural beauty of our vast, mysterious universe. This collection of photographs, paintings and natural art is full of dark, yet colorful pieces of art that can surely be appreciated by us Earthlings, but perhaps also by others from far, far away...

This mind-blowing photograph, taken in 1968 by the first men to ever orbit our moon, shows the Earth rising over the moon's surface. Made up of mostly negative space, the photograph makes it really easy to focus on the Earth, which is near the center. The moon's surface edge creates a hard line, making it easy to contrast from the mysterious black space in the background.
This collection of photographs taken by NASA's Surveyor 1 depicts our moon's landscape. The photographs have been arranged in a pattern to create the astounding final image, which includes the lunar landscape as well as parts of the Surveyor 1's lower body.Each individual photograph includes its unique number identifier.
This unique piece of art was created in 2009 using various electronic parts. The LED lights of varying sizes create the appearance of a colorful and mysterious galaxy. Each LED light represents a star or planet in the galactic system. The frequent use of various colors and shapes contrasting with the black negative background space really helps this piece to stand out.
This image, taken my the Mars Pathfinder in 1997, shows the gritty, mysterious, yet beautiful surface of Earth's neighboring planet.The magic of perspective allows us to see both an entire mountain in the background as well as the bottom clip of the Mars Pathfinder. The sand and dusty atmosphere of Mars make this image have a low saturation.
This oil painting, created in 2009, depicts a unique, colorful vision of our moon's surface. The shadows on the left in contrast with the highlights on the rest of the image creates the illusion of roundness. The rough, lumpy texture gives us an idea of a rugged, harsh environment. When viewed closely, thousands of small, swirly brush strokes make up this mysterious and fascinating painting.
This 1933 painting, perhaps the brightest of collection in this gallery, depicts an orange tinted sun over a cream colored background. The Sun appears to be free handed, as it is not a perfect circle like those of other similar styles. The Sun is positioned closer to the right of the canvas, giving the left side more negative space.
This photograph depicts the lunar module, "Spider" flying around the Earth's orbit. "Spider" seems to be an appropriate name for the module, as its shape is very similar to the arachnid species. In this image, the Earth has a tan color, which is different from the usual blue we see from other similar photographs. As in other photographs from Outer Space, a lot of negative black space can be seen around the objects in focus.
This photograph is a very wide shot of our galaxy, the Milky Way. A natural pattern can be seen made up of millions of stars. The galaxy makes up a mysterious and eerie image that creates more questions than answers. What is out there? Are we alone? Where did this all come from? It's an amazing sight.
Seen here is a remnant of a meteorite that fell to Earth. This photograph in particular was taken by Sabine Verdorn, who positioned the meteorite so that its shadow would create contrast between it and the surface for a perfect image. This is prime example of just how beautiful nature's art can be.
This is a really unique photograph depicting NASA pilot James Irwin walking on the Moon's surface during an Apollo lunar mission in 1971. The low quality photography of the time makes it seem as if the astronaut's lower leg is the same color as the Moon's surface, but his illusion is offset by the shadow depicted behind him. This is a truly amazing shot that further expresses the beauty and mystery that we're all surrounded with just outside of Earth.
