Monday Mystery Photo – Last time Western Australia

My dear friend, Allison’s mystery photo depicted The Pinnacles, an unusual desert with rock formation north of Perth, in Western Australia.

Some thought they were termite mounds but these ancient limestone pillars, called The Pinnacles, are several metres tall. They’re scattered across the desert in Western Australia, North of Perth, in their thousands, creating an eerie, alien-like landscape. Some are as high as three and half metres, and some finish in a jagged point, while others have rounded domes, resembling tombstones. Made up of shells, the Pinnacles date back millions of years to an epoch when the sand was beneath the sea. Read more about this location here.

Correct answers for MMP, came from the following bloggers:

Toortsie.com/

Chris from lifeofrileyow.com/

and Lorelle and Christine who correctly guessed Australia

Well done! That wasn’t an easy location!

Alejandro thought the picture was from the Netherlands, and it certainly has that Dutch gabled look about a few of the buildings, but the correct answer was Bath, England.

Newcomers: Susie from A Secret Knowledge of Spaces and Andrew P of Have Bag, Will Travel, joined Drake Andrikken and Mel and Suan from Travelling Matters, in correctly guessing the location.

Well  done!

The mystery photo last time was also kindly submitted by Lorelle from A Mindful Traveler.com.  Thank you, Lorelle, for your fantastic contribution!

The temple was not located in Greece, as some may have thought, but in Agrigento, on the South coast of Sicily, Italy and is known as the Temple of Concordia.

Apart from the Parthenon, it is the best preserved Doric temple in the world.

Mel and Suan from https://travelingmatters.net/ were not fooled and guessed the location correctly! Well done!

This week’s Mystery Photograph

 

Last time, the Mystery Photo was submitted by Yinglan, who blogs at Another Story.

Thank you Yinglan for the photo. You set a great challenge for some of regular readers.

Here is last week’s photo from Yinglan:

Did you guess correctly?

I received a range of guesses including Dee, who proposed the location as Turkey, and Mosy who suggested Canada, but it was in fact,  Leggy Peggy and The Mindful Traveller Lorelle, who guessed the location correctly as USA. The strange rock formations are found in Bryce canyon National Park, in Utah. The area is also known for crimson-colored hoodoos, which are spire-shaped rock formations.

Best of luck with guessing the location of this week’s photograph.

Last Time on Monday Mystery Photo

Arundhati from the blog Travel Tales of a Dippy Dotty Girl,  had us all thinking hard about the location for her submission featured previously on Monday Mystery Photo! Remember this one :-

Arunhati Dippy Dotti Girl

 

 Here is what Arundhati had to say about the statue and its location:

“The Ronald Reagan statue in Budapest stands in Liberty Square as a token of the Hungarians’ appreciation of the man who brought the Cold War to an end and effectively liberated Hungary from the clutches of the Soviet empire.”

Did you guess correctly? It was a little deceptive!

Here are the winners for this round:-

Alejandro and Drake knew precisely the location

Whilst Mel and Suan offered a regional answer

https://travelingmatters.net/

and Lorelle when pressed, was also correct with the country!!
