An eagles' vantage point


Yes, really it's great stuff.
A list of major and interesting buildings that I can see from my 7th floor (European counting) is given here below — click on the images to enlarge them. I'm just a little bit too fed up with all the graphics stuff to care to make an image map out of all this.
Note that visibility may vary due to weather conditions. How this links up with other interests, see there.
If in want for better pictures: these can be had at sizes up to 2137x1240 pixels at request&payment.

First, here's an overview to the left (West — North — East): Click to enlarge the overview
