Reprise of the rules.

The winner of the previous round posts a picture and a question about it. Typically "where.

You may not use "tin eye" or similar reverse image look up sites.

Please do not use EXIF data from the image to help. (note to posters, please remove EXIF data). This can include titles and location data.

Please do not allow 24 hours to pass between clues.

Questions deserve an answer (with the exception, of course, of directly asking for the answer).

We will have to figure out how to deal with winners that go AWOL.

Clues may be text or photographic.

Contestants may use text searches to look for images (in particular images.google.com is allowed to be searched via text searches).

There is no rule about having visited a place. If you have visited a place (or not) and instantly recognize where the picture is, go for it.

Please try to choose a picture and question where it is possible someone else will know or be able to research your answer. For example a picture of someone in your family and asking for the name will be just impossible for anyone else to get.

PM The winner.

That is obviously the Lonely Mountain from the Lord of the Rings book. Is the photo taken in the US (based on the state question)?

Is it taken in New Zealand (based on the lord of the rings tie in?)

No not the Misty Mountains. I am going to guess this to be Lake Helen, California. I will not mention the Peak I think is in the background.

Lake of the Woods, upper Klamath River Basin, Oregon, with Mt. McLaughlin in the background.

[edit]It wasn't easy. Now I can name at least dozen other lakes in Oregon that looks pretty much the same and they are all beautiful.[/edit]

I grew up in Klamath Falls and was up there several times.

Thanks, I suspected that the answer could be close to your last riddle :-)
Now let's get back to ruins... Name the building and it's location.

Wow, interesting combination of architectural styles. Based on the combination of Roman, Greek and Gothic elements I would guess it's in the Baltic states, like Serbia?

ROFL... It is not in Serbia even if the Serbia is in the Baltic region. Also not in the Balkans.(I mean building not Serbia lol).

@skildude
Not in Turkey either, altough you are right about Byzantine architecture.

[edit]Sorry mates for being late. Just found that e-mail notifications for subscribed threads doesn't work either, same as Richard found out about PMs.[/edit]
