Earlier this week, I had explored the new Google Earth and warned myself that This may take a while. One of the things that I enjoyed exploring was the Wonders of the Ancient and Modern world.
That was my inspiration and I thought. Ontario doesn’t need to take a back seat the the other parts of the world. We have lots of natural and man-made things to enjoy. So, I sought out to see what I could see via the 3D experience.
I learned that there are better quality mapped areas within the province. I learned that it take a fine control to rotate, zoom in and out, to get the best possible picture. And, I learned that sometimes the best images come from Street view and, quite frankly, just from people who know how to take and share a good picture.
I’m sure that my collection isn’t inclusive and would challenge you to explore and share on your own. This could be fun. Some of what I chose to include may be up for debate – so debate me – and come up with something better!
Oh, and for the record, I’ve been to all these.
The Big Nickel in Sudbury
Jumbo Monument in St. Thomas
The Tip at Point Pelee
Casa Loma in Toronto
The Sleeping Giant in Thunder Bay
The Rideau Canal (was hoping for a winter shot)
The North Entrance to the Welland Canal (Port Weller)
The Beach at Grand Bend (Ontario’s best beach. I might hear about this)
A Waterfall near Hamilton on the 403 (Looks dry here but not so earlier this week)
Math and Computers Building at the University of Waterloo
Canadian Parliament Buildings
Do you agree with my choices? What would you add?
