Green River redux

Here are my two photos from the post below, as nearly as I could reproduce them on Google Earth. I set the altitude in each case for nearly 30,000 feet, to match the plane's height, and then adjusted the tilt in order to view the ground at a slant.

Is it just me, or does Google Earth seem to stretch the earth's surface vertically in their images, especially in this second photo? I can get a Google image that looks closer to the photo I took, but only by flying the plane at 40,000 feet and at other heights that cannot be right. How photo-realistic is Google's imagery?
