Sunset at the north pole with moon at its closest point



This beautiful image circulates via email and is often posted to online forums and blogs. Although it is certainly a breathtaking picture it is a work of art, not a photograph.

The image is in fact a work by artist Inga Nielsen. The image, called "Hideaway" can be viewed on the artist's website.

The image was created using a scenery generator program called Terragen™
