    Link Cool Island pics

    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.

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