  1. Oh, I’m still around (but I can quit anytime… honest!).

    This one I put in the southern hemisphere - Australia, South Africa, or Argentina.

    It looks like a body of tepid water in the lower right corner.

  2. On further review, this could be northern hemisphere early on a summer morning. And I now think that the big house has water on three sides - muddy water, but still water. Perhaps that’s a dike at the top right.

    Yes, I’m guessing. I’m floundering.

  3. It’s a tough one. The primary feature is not visible above 15,000 feet. Given its location, I’m hard-pressed to figure out exactly what this even is.

  4. Well, Brad,

    It’s been 11 days now. Any chance of a little extra help? I’ve made some observations but I’ve no idea if I’m on or far from the mark.

    Given that the picture is so close to the ground, I think we need some help (and not the psychiatric kind either!)

  5. Let’s just say that Alan’s first suspicions with regard to hemisphere were pretty good.

  6. Fiendlishly difficult one. I gotta be close, as I have seen dozens of the things by now, but can’t find the right one… My guess is that it is a motorcross or horse or dog racing track on a farm.

  7. Yes - this one is very tough. I think everyone will be surprised about this one in some way.

  8. Well, Rogier, you’re doing far better than I. I can’t even figure out the continent, let alone country or region. :(

    HAHAHA!!
    That was easy!

  10. Obviously someone was familiar with Perth. I’ve updated the KMZ so it’s easy to find now.
