I made a screensaver like this -- just a bunch of cool photos screencapped from my first time using Google Earth. Funny how a lot of the places I saved crop up in this gallery, too (#2, #5, #12, #23).

How does the island affect the clouds in #13? Or is it just a coincidence?

The island reaches a height of almost 3000 ft so it messes with cloud formations.
