Another great site for this type of photos is The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth, it has thousands of photos taken by astronauts.
PS: The images are great but there are some mistakes in the descriptions.
Azores and Madeira (not Madera, it's not a Spanish island) are not close to each other, they are two different archipelagos and they are very far apart, what the arrow points to is just the Azores, Madeira is almost half distance between the Azores and the Canary islands. And it's not "Islas".
It's not "Rió de Janeiro", it's "Rio de Janeiro"; it's not "Veló Horizonte", it's "Belo Horizonte"
