One of the iconic structures at Disney's Epcot park is the geodesic ball (a.k.a. Spaceship Earth). Here are a few images taken during our visit to Orlando over the holidays.

The close-ups work out great; the light plays nicely on the surface as it gives difference hues on each triangle.
See my webpage!
A-mount stuff, and few 43 stuff.

For me, too, the close-ups are the real winners here, love the last one especially!

Hi Brian,

#'s 2 and, especially, 5 are just spectacular! I love the repeating patterns and the colours and tones in these are just lovely. For something relatively old it also looks in great condition as well - the quality of the surfaces helps with the impact of the images I feel.

Thanks for sharing these and best regards, Neil.

Those close up patterns are out of this world! If I didn't know better from an old 3D modelers view I'd almost think they are renders with controlled lighting.!

Thank you all for the kind comments!

The close-ups are my favorites as well. Even after 45 years, the sphere (and the rest of the park) are immaculately maintained. Disney has taken advantage of advances in lighting technology over the years and the night views here and around the park are stunning.

Cheers... Brian
