Where on Google Earth #593

Felix presented an interesting puzzle this time with his WoGE #592 which turned out to be the Stone Forest of Shilin.

This one is not quite as puzzling:

Where on Google Earth #591

Finding Felix' WoGE #590 was not as hard as it looked, once I decided it must be in the lower reaches of Himalaya. Then it was just a matter of finding the reports about a large and interesting landslide in recent years.


This one will be a little harder, so I will give THREE pictures instead of one. 


First, the area:




Next, the detail I'm after:



And third, another example of the same phenomenon from the  same region:




It is possible that you will have to guess at what this is to be able to search for documentation, so I will give a hint right at the start: These veins are NOT volcanic.

Where on Google Earth #588


This will be polished a bit,  but I really want it up for New year!

Fireworks may have been involved...

Where on Google Earth #586

After Luis' beautiful battery acid lake with eaqually beautiful blue burning sulfur eruptions, it is my turn again:




This is more of a "geosomething". ;)

Where on Google Earth #583

After two very slow rounds, Felix showed us Fogo - a far too little known volcano which besides having had a recent eruption also was teh source of a massive tsunami 73k years ago.

This one is not volcanic:

Where on Google Earth #580



Summer is a slow time, so I have not hurried with finding a new puzzle after sitting on the solution to Felix' WoGE #579 for well over a week. There was something very Australian about the place, and if that was correct then it had to be Southern Australia, and all in all it took me less than  10 minutes from opening Google Earth to finding the location.

This one should be about the same level of difficulty: A  player has to wait three hours for each former win, before he/she is allowed to solve this challenge. 




Since I expect experienced players to find it VERY quickly, I also invoke the triple Schott Rule:

Really? It's been three weeks now, and no suggestions? I can't really zoom out more, and showing a detail won't help if you can't find a 16km circular feature... It's in one of the most popular countries - for WoGEs. :)

Where on Google Earth #578

Oh. Ah, it's my turn again. I found Felix' lovely Purbeck beds, and have been rather busy since.

So what's this, then?
