Cool Google Earth Shots Of The Day from Lists of the Day

 I haven’t been on Lists of the Day in a long time and this was the first thing that I saw when I clicked on it today and this looks pretty awesome. I’ve never had that much time to wander on Google Earth, but now I want too!

 Cool Google Earth Shots Of The Day

I was playing with Google Earth the other night and started looking up famous landmarks. I must say — pretty cool stuff. Click any pic for a better view.


Mt. St. Helens


Alcatraz


Stonehenge. (‘Tis a magic place, where the moon doth rise with a dragon’s face.)


Eiffel Tower


Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe


Taj Mahal, India (home of Dell customer service)


The Great Pyramids


A segment of the Panama Canal


The Teton Range


Sydney Harbour, with the Opera House and Harbour Bridge


Hollywood Sign


The Parthenon, Greece


Ellis Island


Temple Mount, Jerusalem


Niagara Falls


Machu Picchu, Peru (“The Lost City Of The Incas”)


Half Dome, Yosemite National Park


Arc De Triomphe, Paris


Venice, Italy


Colosseum, Rome


Diamondhead Crater, Hawaii

Google Earth gives you the option to have the program superimpose 3-D illustrations of buildings over its satellite photos, which comes in handy when the angle of objects in the photo does not match your viewing angle, as seen in this shot of the Statue Of Liberty without 3-D.

The same shot (almost) with the 3-D enabled. I’m not sure which is the lesser of two evils: one is weird and one is fake. But it’s a small complaint.

Another example…


The fountain pool at the Bellagio in Las Vegas without 3-D enabled.


And a wider shot of the Vegas Strip in 3-D.


London, with Big Ben in 3-D


Devil’s Tower, Wyoming (from Close Encounters Of The Third Kind) in 3-D


St. Louis Arch (3-D)
