I think I do.
I've never really looked from that angle but it looks to me like New
Zealand. In the centre is Cook Straight with Wellington just to the
left (BTW left = North, top = East). I get the impression they're
looking at it from a low angle as it seems slightly distorted. Pretty
On the right hand side is Banks Peninsula. I live just next to that.
I'm going to have to save that photo. Thanks for pointing it out.
