Via the POV-Ray web site I discovered the really amazing renderings of Christoph Hormann. He renders detailed images of just about any landscape on Earth, using the (imho very underrated) freeware renderer POV-Ray. Both the level of detail and the colors are simply amazing. Technical information on how he did this can be found on his Rendering planets page.
