It didn't last 1 hour!! <_<

I guessed with Cartotalkers all around the world, I should have pick a location in Antarctica where nobody has been! ;) Unless there's a scientist there who's a member?

I really hope I'll be able to visit it someday... in the meantime, I'll enjoy my new pool and the lake this summer :D

Oh well! Well done Nick, your turn!

This one puzzled me for a couple of days when it was posted in the Skyscrapercity.com contest:

How the hell do you guys guess these things! That could be anywhere!
I,ve have been drawing maps for 25 years and I havent been able to get one! here or on skyscraper city! not even close!
Always had that trouble-probably would'nt even recognize my own neighbourhood
I think that's why I got into perspective oblique maps. My brain just cant process straight-up plan views...like being a tone-deaf musician!

That's beautiful Barcelona! The key was the Torre Agbar off to the right, which was just built a few years ago. Wikipedia has photos and info.

You're correct! What puzzled me for so long was the tram you can see turning the corner at bottom center, at the Plaça de Glòries Catalanes. Last time I was in Barcelona, not so long ago, the only tram in town was the Tramvia Blau.

That was a good one, Dennis. To continue with the theme of symmetry, here's a new one...

Mt. Taranaki in New Zealand!

A personal favorite. I first saw it imaged in the "Mountains from space" book that was published a few years ago. It's nearly a perfect circle..

I am going to combine the latter themes and provide a symmetrical feature in a location where many vacation. I have not been there yet, but it's near the top of my list.

It may not be that difficult for this crowd. We'll see.
