Google Earth Beta Kicks Ass
You can see things like this, on the Skeleton Coast.
And this, it's called Fogo.
If you don't have it, get it. It's amazing. These pictures are small, but on your screen the detail in some places is amazing and you can zoom in pretty close. I've been spending way too much time playing with this. :)
In the Alps you can see Swiss people driving their little boats on their little lakes, living in their pretty little valley towns and thinking they are better than we are. For some reason that pisses me off. ;)
