After spending six months in space, Tim Peake has left the International Space Station (ISS) and landed back on Earth.

The Soyuz capsule landed safely in Kazakhstan around 10.15am UK time. 

While the British astronaut has kept us updated about his movements over the last 186 days (including his historic space walk and his London Marathon run on a treadmill), luckily for us he has also found time to get his Nikon D4 out and snap some incredibly breathtaking photos that make our planet look like an amazing work of art.


Here are some of his very best #earthart photos...

1. Red sand dunes in Sahara Desert, north-east Algeria.
