I have a new camera.

So I took a picture of our field. Google Earth is so cool. You can easily pick out landmarks. I have been all over the place. Some cities are such high resolution you can easily see cars and stuff on the ground

Check it out. It' s free

BTW, our runway is at the bottom right of the infield of the horse track. This picture is from before we arrived.

How did you get the "sharp" image. I found my address, but it is extremely blurry and you can't even make out the roads. When I add the road overlay, it does have the right location though.

It depends on where you are. Most of the the earth is in moderately low resolution, but some areas are very good. If I look at the area around Picture Butte Alberta, for instance, i can see the cows in the feedlots, but a few miles to the east, no chance.

I found it interesting a few months back you could see with great detail all around Canada's Wonderland. But the park itself was a fuzzy.. Also check out The Toronto Airport.
