    Where?

    For many this will be very simple, where is this and why did I pick this place?

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    Re: Where?

    It is not in the UK or Australia.
    To the south of this location is the main campus of a university that has about 29,000 students (a Google search shows a lot of universities have about 29,000 students <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>) - a bit of the campus is visible in the new image below.
    The road near the middle of the original picture is Regency Place.

    When it comes to why I chose the location, none of the above is relevant.

    Re: Where?

    Would <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Google Earth</span hide> have anything to do with it?

    As usual I have got lost with the subtlety of the answers....OK I can see it is from <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Google Earth</span hide> but why did Leif get the answer right?

    Re: Where?

    Thank you - took a bit of obscure Googling to get that one! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Edited to add:
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">For anyone still wondering, start up GoogleEarth and zoom in to the default starting location...</span hide>

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Open Google Earth 4 (may also get same result with earlier versions), wait until it finishes loading the image of North America, then zoom in.</span hide>
