Nothing all that special, but Stumbled upon these three pictures of islands from the air. The first two are pretty regular, but the third shows cool weather-related things (pressure regulation, coriolis effect, etc). Since I'm working on this stuff myself right now, I found it interesting and thought ome of you might too. Here it is.

Yeah, good find. I'm always using these kinds of pics to set my colors right for sat-style mapping. I've yet to get the coastal aquas right so this is another helper. Thanks, man.

Those pics are cool!!! I just can't recognize the third one... it's some kind of a storm?

The third one is from an island with a 5000 foot elevation, disrupting the clouds as they blow by :)
