-> 2006 -> Islay from Space


Islay from Space

A reader just asked me for a picture or map of Islay from space she had heard I had. This is actually something I blogged on my other blog a while ago: In November 2004 I blogged about 'Islay from Space', followed by 'Islay from Space (again)' in April 2005. Here's an example of one of the pictures from back then:

Unfortunately the resolution for the images of Islay (and the surrounding islands) isn't as good as it is for a lot of urban areas in the UK, so you won't be able to zoom in on individual houses, but you can still make out quite a few things.
