Amazing images from Google Earth, focusing on the ocean. The colours, patterns and images that can be found are fantastic. An initial post on ‘Earth Art’ is here. You can find most of these on Google Maps too using the coordinates on the pictures.
Half looking at this it could be a mountain with snow clinging to its rocky slopes in the shade while the sun catches the ridge. Not what you’d expect from a tiny blurry patch until you zoom in. This can be found in the English Channel just south of Jersey.
Imagine the currents that created this – the giant submerged ridges and the deep channels. This is just off the NE coast of Australia in the Coral Sea (not visible on Google Maps).
This is also from Australia – just off Gladstone in Shark Bay, Western Australia. Reminiscent of noctilucent clouds, aptly like sharks teeth.
This is a reef east of Nassau in The Bahamas – the contrast of textures drew my eye.
