Or an aberration, the land areas are clear.

I don't know what the red blotches are. They look distinct shapes so could
it be kelp farming or similar?

Fantastic shots, must have taken some time. The land areas are brilliant,
wonder about the red blotches in the sea (plankton?).

To UK users the concept of photo scenery is old hat - anyone with VFGM
has accepted it as normal and we forget that most FS users elsewhere
in the world are still looking at synthetic scenery. That is why a
post on AVSIM is creating a lot of interest at the moment - the author
having managed to port
Google Earth data into FSX itself.

I have no idea how this works and he's not giving any details out
either - but you can see the potential. Google's high res coverage
isn't that massive right now but that is only a matter of time - it is
the concept that is intriguing. I'd love to know how he's managed to
get Google data to stream into FSX and how it is correctly located but
I doubt we'll ever find this out. Some screenshots at
http://www.flickr.com/photos/71882461@N00/sets/72157594413142755/show for
the curious, however if you have GenX you've seen it all before - it's
just
a different location.
