Where On Google Earth?

The Online Geography Game

Upcoming contest #500

Where On Google Earth started in February 2008, and has been providing players around the world with challenging puzzles on a (now) weekly basis.

Contest 500 is one away now, and would like to celebrate this with a different kind of contest – where you get to choose one location each to challenge the rest of the players.

Submit a location (name/lat/lon/scale if important) and a helpful hint. We will number and post all images for everyone to solve. We reserve the right to not use locations that do not meet our standards. We will reveal all hints at the usual date and time (0001 UTC on Wednesday).

Everyone should get at least 2 points, but can someone find them all?
