Waiting for spring.

I'm getting itchy waiting for Spring to ... well.. spring already, so I can get out with the kids and the cameras and have some fun. But until then, I'll just entertain myself making my own pictures. Here's the latest I made with Gimp:

I don't know why I like fake space-scapes, but I do. Everything except the background is fake. The galaxy in the middle was based on a Hubble picture from NASA. The stars in the back are real. Other than that the rest is CGI. The clouds on the blue planet aren't quite realistic, but I'm still practicing.
