Thats been on Google for quite a while, they drive around in a vehicle with camera mounted on it and it takes a pic (or movie) not sure as then drive around. I have seen the vehicle around this area a few times.

Google street view is awesome...I look at areas I haven't been to for many years to see how they've changed. Images in street view are a few years old at most. I've noticed that some areas have been "re-shot". They did my street in 2008.
