Answer:

Hello,

It seems that there is an issue of techumin between the two places, as it is  not in a well populated area, and it is a distance of about six techum Shabbos. (an eruv would permit walking two techum Shabbos, not six) I sent the picture to an expert in this field, and he said that it is quite difficult for him to permit this, particularly due to the distance between the two ares, and the fact that it seems to have a quite a number of industrial (non- residential) buildings along the way. Additionally it is difficult to make out what is in the area from such a picture.

Bottom line, I can’t say that it is permitted, but you can definitely ask someone else.

Best wishes
