Monday Mystery Photo – Last time Sicily

Every second Monday, I post a photo of a ‘mystery’ location, and sometimes a mystery object.  I invite you to leave a comment if you think you know the location, or what the mystery object might be.

If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog in the follow-up post, when the answer is revealed. Comments will be released on alternate Monday (Australian E.S.T.), so as not to spoil the fun for late-comers.

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!

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

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.

Previous Monday Mystery Photo – Cambodia

philipcambodia

 

Last time the mystery photo, seen above, originated from guest contributor Philip Duck whose blog, Cambodia Beginnings, can be found here.

Many thanks, for the kind use of the photo, Philip. It is much appreciated.

Philip tells us a little more about the structure here:

Wat (Pagoda) Sangke,

Battambang city, Battambang, Cambodia :

“Opposite the Wat is a park and the delightful Sangke river. Battambang is Cambodia’s third-largest city, but it’s a peaceful place with some beautiful French colonial architecture. Many consider Battambang rice to be the country’s best.”

Here are the winners for this round:-

Mel and Suan from Travelingmatters.net/  knew the temple itself by the four faces of Buddha
 Restlessjo  and Mosy thought it was very much like Angkor Wat and thus guessed Cambodia correctly.

Pooja  and Leggypeggy.com/  were also confident it was Cambodia

Can you guess as well this week?

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!!

Ineke from iscrap2 supplied us with a great challenge this time, to determine the location for the following statue.  Some readers thought it was a European  Statue, or even Icelandic, and I have to admit, this one was quite a tricky location, but if you have been following my blog posts recently, you would have found a clue there. 

The statue is actually located in the Hutt Valley, north of Wellington, New Zealand. Ineke tells us about the location of the statue –

“It stood in front of the Upper Hutt station since 1979,
called the Maternity statue, depicting a mother and two children.

The station walkway has been completed the end of last year. The statue has been moved southwards to a new area and is more visible to pedestrians and motorists.” -Ineke

The clue for the location of the photo, is that it is also the subject of the logo for a poetry challenge which runs once a month for six months on Our blogs: Iscrap2 and Something to Ponder About.

A and I Poetry Challenge

Join in, if you wish! It is something you could ponder about.
