Great picture; but, the marker for it on Google-Earth show it as just above the north end of Cherry Lake, not Hetch Hetchy.

Thanks for the comment.

The Panoramio guidelines recommend placing the marker at the location where the camera was, not where the subject is. That is my best estimate of where I was when I snapped the picture - or more specifically about eight miles above that point on a passing commercial flight. It's possible I was closer to the target, but I don't have a GPS measurement from the moment I took the shot.

The picture is associated to the place "Hetch Hetchy Reservoir".

Thanks again! -i
