I hope this works ....

picking up the idea of emc some threads ago I'll try to connect the fact of really "being there" (I mean in real reality ;-)) and GE. I attached two photos I shot during the last 12 month and the according kmz file. the one in Australia shows exacly the place where I stood when taking the picture. The wave was breaking on the small rock which is reaching into the sea in eastern direction of the placemark.

with the one in California I tried to simulate the exact angle and point of view I had on the photo. I think can find some more of this.

Do you think this is interesting?

Let's see what you've got!

Good Idea! Here we go.... Engadin, Switzerland (Make sure you have enabled "Terrain" in Google Earth)

that's a nice one!!!

but how about this view from Hancock Tower in Chicago? (I think I used a zoom there, so in GE I might be hanging slightly off the tower.)
