Earth From Above

The Atlantic recently featured an interactive puzzle game based on Google Earth's satellite photographs of interesting locations around the world. Though the game itself is fun—quizzing viewers on their ability to guess a location based on its appearance from above—what really struck me was just how stunning these images are, and just how tragically beautiful man's influence on the land can be when viewed from this unique perspective. So head over to the Atlantic's In Focus blog to play the game and view these stunning photographs. It really is a nice collection of images that's worth a look even if you're uninterested in playing the game (you party pooper).
