Earth Wallpapers

Mt Egmont, New is a growing series of desktop wallpapers created from Google Maps images. I like this idea. I've always loved aerial photographs and now the possibilities are endless and accessible, thanks to Google Maps and Google Earth.

Notice the disclaimer (or rather plea) at the bottom of the site though: "This site claims no ownership of any of the images used. We are just trying to share. Please don't shut me down Google".

The above image is of a New Zealand volcano, Mt Egmont. Even though I've lived in Sydney for many years, I was born and raised in NZ, so images like this are close to my heart.
