This is the smallest photo scenery we have ;-)
It is a blender model that was made after a topo map and an aerial photo from
terraserver-usa. The buildings are after google image search. I removed the
flat land area that was in the scenery with fgsd.

The real photo can be seen here : http://www.nps.gov/alcatraz/


BTW Curt, it is Alcatraz, not AlcRatraz (R emphazized) in the legend of the
images in the Gallery.
