All the world’s a mosaic – #MosaicMonday

While traveling by plane for the holidays this past week, did any of you have a window seat and happen to gaze out at the mosaic of natural wonders? Did you realize that mother earth was the original mosaic artist?

Here’s a birds eye view below, can you guess where?
