Does anybody recognise this place?

Here (http://sal.neoburn.net/imagef1/files/place.jpg). (No, it's not in NZ)

Close Up (http://sal.neoburn.net/imagef1/files/place1.jpg). (Fancy buildings :))

Are those cricket pitches (http://sal.neoburn.net/imagef1/files/place2.jpg)? (Genuine question!)

Hard one Mike,
On the third photo could that be a softball pitch at the other end of the field (top left)

Ah, yeah, I picked that one :D Seeing as I know where the pictures are of, I'd probably pick that it's a baseball (rather than softball) diamond, which is why it makes it seem a little more odd that those could be cricket pitches...

I'm thinking it might be a school somewhere in the USA.

Would they play cricket in USA land, NZ plays or used to both cricket & baseball /softball as summer sport at school.

Now don't get baseball and softball mixed up here Eric - they're two quite different sports. We play softball here in NZ, while they play baseball in the US, Canada, and some other places (Although there are some baseball clubs in NZ, just as there are many people who play softball in the US etc).

I'm guessing it's M$ HQ?

Is this correct?

Thought so - it just looks so Micro$ofty doesn't it?! The weird shaped buildings, the terrain and size did it for me.
