Couples Walking in Google Earth

Lover shadows in Google EarthThe higher resolution imagery in Google Earth was sometimes captured when the angle of the sun is low. This enables one to see details laid out by shadows which would otherwise be invisible. Someone called ‘JosieNorden’ at the Google Earth Community has placemarked examples of lovers walking in parks, beaches, and other places. If you are looking for something in Google Earth to brighten your day, then this collection is worth a few minutes time. You can fly through to each placemark by selecting the downloaded folder and choosing “play tour” (the button below that looks like your TV remote play button). See original post at Google Earth Community.

  1. Brighten our day, maybe. But if the whole high resolution coverage is with a low sun angle, as in the current imagery of London, much more of value is lost in the deep shadows, especially in the canyons of the City streets.

  2. Why does my attempts to connect to server say invalid URL.. Could someone please help..?

    Funny that all the couples that are labelled with “Kiev” are not located in the Ukrainian capital but in the German city of Kiel.
