Google Earth's image update

What a treat! When I opened Google Earth tonight I noticed that they've updated their images of where I live. From the brown and drab images that must have been taken in the winter of 2007 or 2008, they've updated with bright green summer images taken on xmas day last year (25 Dec 2010).

As we near the end of winter I am so ready for warmth (lots of it) and green.

I took two of the captures from my 35 Days of Running and placed the new version next to it. Looks a bit like colours are over saturated and I don't think resolution is quite as good as the old image - loads of glare too. But, the green of the gardens and trees is way better than dry brown.

Log on - they may have updated your 'hood too.
