Seeing from space 2

Or not, as I know today. The photos taken for the immersing Google Earth are not satellite photos from space (as I thought), but merely taken from high-flying aircraft. Either way, they are quite something. Here's another run down of landmarks I discovered using it, complete with my efforts taken at ground level underneath...

The Australian Parliament, Canberra

Ulva Island, New Zealand

Blackpool Tower

Tokyo cityscape

Ryoan-ji zen rock garden, Kyoto

Eastern Creek Raceway, Sydney
