Where in the World (24)

Where in the World (24)

Last weeks “planet” generated a variety of guesses in addition to the correct answer. The biggest clue was the cathedral though one person picked up on the bridge as well. The skyline is that of Cologne taken from across the Rhine. The original picture is below in its undistorted form. Among the other answers were guesses that included Tallinn and Budapest. Regulars Tim (@timofnewbury) and Kirsty and coworkers (@thefrogfather) both identified the “planet” correctly as Cologne. Congratulations and thank you for taking part. This weeks planet is below and is a fairly well known view of the city. Can you identify the city? If you think you can identify the “planet” then leave your answer in the comments below or head over to my Twitter stream (@lethers) and leave your answer there with the hashtag #WITW24. Good luck to everyone.

Last week’s “planet” is published below. It is the capital of a Mediterranean island that has seen many invaders because of its strategic position. The view is of the skyline of Valetta, capital of Malta. There were two correct answers this week; both from old hands at this “quiz with a twist” Tim (@timofnewbury) is back to his winning ways again and is joined by Richard (@RField75). This week’s planet is published below. It’s not the iconic view of the city but the featured building is iconic. Can you identify the city? As usual you can leave your answer in the comments below or head over to my Twitter stream (@lethers) and leave your answer there with the hashtag #WITW23. Good luck.

Last weeks “planet” proved to be far more challenging than I thought. As you can see from the undistorted photograph below it is the iconic pyramid in front of the Louvre. The city is therefore Paris. A good few people had a go at identifying the city and there was quite a diversity of guesses including Leeds, Berlin and Prague. However there was no one who identified the city correctly as Paris. This weeks “planet” is perhaps equally challenging and unlike the previous few is a daytime shot which might make it easier than the last one. If you think you can identify the city then leave your answer in the comments below or head over to my Twitter feed – @lethers – and leave your answer there using the hashtag #WITW22. Good luck.

Where in the World (20) attracted more entries than any other before it. The “planet” from last week is published below in its undistorted form. This stunning photograph by Moyan Brenn is of the Hungarian Parliament building on the Danube in Budapest.   There were three people who correctly identified the city as Budapest. Repeat winners Kirsty (@thefrogfather) and Tim (@timofnewbury) who identified it using the flags as a clue. They were joined by newcomer Richard Field (@RField75) who should recognise both building and the city as it features in the header of his blog. Well done to the three of you. This weeks planet is below and like last week’s the city can be identified by the iconic building. Can you correctly identify the city? You can put your answer in the comments below or you can head over…

Last week’s “planet” is published below, undistorted. If you don’t recognise the profile of this much photographed skyline the twin beams of light should give you a clue. They represent the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center; the city of course is New York and the photograph is of the Manhattan skyline. This week there were several attempts at answering the question “Where in the World?” Of all those that  were submitted only two people correctly identified the city as New York. Once again Tim Thomas (@timofnewbury) was correct and he is joined again this week by Kirsty (@thefrogfather). Congratulations to you both and thanks for taking part. Perhaps this week’s “planet”, posted below, will present more of a challenge to last week’s repeat winners. Can you identify which city it is? If you think you have identified the…

Last week’s “planet” is published below undistorted. The colourful domes and the distinctive shape identify the building as St Basil’s Cathedral. This rather colourful church is an iconic scene which can be found in Moscow Three people identified the twisted photograph as having been taken in Moscow. A regular to these posts Tim Thomas (@timofnewbury) was joined by Rich Milligan (@BGCollector) and Kirsty from Black Frog Publishing (@thefrogfather). Congratulations to all three of you. This week’s “planet” is below. This city is often seen from this viewpoint and there are several clues that should help identify “Where in the World…” it is. You can leave your answer in the comments below or head over to my Twitter feed @lethers and leave your answer there with the hashtag #WITW19. Don’t forget the hashtag as it will be almost impossible for me to find your…

The distinct shape of the building known as The Gherkin and the dome of St Paul’s identify the city skyline as that of London Two people identified it as London, Tim Thomas (@timofnewbury) again and Ellen Braksator (@EBraksator).

Happy New Year to everyone. This is the first of 2013’s “Where in the World…” – the photographic travel quiz with a twist. Below is the undistorted view of last week’s “planet”. The iconic TV tower is the big clue to which city it is. It is the Chinese city of Shanghai. Only one person had the correct answer. Tim Thomas (@timofnewbury) worked out that it was Shanghai. It is not the first time he has got the right answer, there are at least two other occasions. Congratulations. This weeks “planet” is, or should be, easier. Well it is the start of a new year. Can you guess which city it is? You can either put your answer in the comments below or, if you prefer, head over to my Twitter account (@lethers) and leave your answer there with the…

Welcome to another “Where in the World…” the travel photographic quiz with a twist. This is the last one of 2012 but we will be back right at the start of 2013. Last week’s “planet” is shown below as an undistorted photograph. I thought that it would be a difficult one to work out but it seems that it was not as hard as I thought. The TV tower was perhaps the easiest part to recognise as being part of Kuwait City. Two people provided the right answer both of them travel editors. Maxine Sheppard (@MaxineSheppard) who edits the vtravelled blog for Virgin Atlantic and Nigel Thompson (@MirrorTravel) who edits the travel section of The Mirror. Congratulations to you both. This weeks “planet” is posted below. Photographs of this city are often taken from this viewpoint though very few are…

Last weeks “planet” has been straightened out and is posted below in its undistorted form below. The floodlit buildings on the hill is probably the best clue as to which city it is. The correct answer is Prague. There was only one correct guess. For the second time Tim Thomas (@timofnewbury) worked out where the “planet” was. Well done Tim. This weeks “planet” is below and is probably the hardest one yet. This is because it is not such a well known city and is not on the beaten tourist track. It should keep you guessing (or researching) over the Christmas period. Leave your answer in the comments below or head over to my Twitter stream (@lethers) and leave your answer there with the has tag #WITW15. The answer and a new twisted photograph will be posted next week –…
