Oh thanks to you too eytanz - that's kind of you ( and a mod point to both you and zauberer).

What do you think - is this too difficult?

Not a problem. I'm really bad at this game, so I can't be a judge of difficulty (the only reason I got the HK airport is because I once spent 18 hours stuck there thanks to a mechanical problem in the plane I was supposed to catch, and I remember reading up about it when I was there).

Thanks for the help, I will try to open it now. :thumbsup I'm not sure if it is too difficult yet. The only one I didn't have a hard time with was the Disney one, and I was about three pictures too late when I logged in and looked at it. :lol

Edit: okay I was able to open it, but I can't find it yet.

mah… Elfstone is be indeed Good to put this image, I do not know absolutely where it has taken it but using Internet, google and google hearth map for 2 days I have still not found nothing…. I am tightening the possible fields, I have one small list of places of where not to try in order to help someone that is patient better than me, before writing this list I would want to make it a po large for having possibility greater to find this island, I hardly modernize to this post my list of suggestions is completes. :D

List of my found:

I have not found the island, but from what I have understood I can give some suggestion to you: 1) Not is sure in Italy. 2) someone has said that is formed from a volcano. 3) Tried in the great deep and large oceans, but not too much island is to be on the one lake 4) Tried also in the chain of volcanos. i continue to shearch.

Bye

And I still don't get how a larger file should download faster than a smaller one... :huh

Well Mr Magician, wasn't it you who said

"i will be really impressed if anybody finds this place! it is captured with a hight of about 8 km and the only clue is that it is formed by a volcano and there two villages on it. not my thing to browse the whole earth included the oceans..."
;)

I had made another picture, from higher up, (showing all three islands and the coast of county Connemara), to post today to give people ideas, but it's not needed.

Very well done, and 3 points to you. :thumbsup

Elfstone.

well, i was "it"...

i thought about it again and again, reassuming all we knew about the place (volcanic, island, the hight...) burt it was a really hard one!

here ist the next (it should be a little bit easier imho):


where we are (country)?
what is "what's this?"?



at all it will bring you 2 points to figure this out.

P.S.: if somebody like to solve another hard riddle i can post one too...
P.P.S.: it seems to be impossible to attach a file with an apostrophe in it's name.

i think i should give a hint to avoid that my riddle will be another really hard one. :yes

we are looking on earth from a height of about 10km (34.000 feet) so the meassuring stick shown in Google Earth is about 3km (9.500 feet). the alignment is exactly to north.

there's a volcanoe crater on mid right side...

and it is a place you should visit when you travel around in this country. the name seems to promise a painful adventure but it isn't one imho...

even if i don't know what you call "Syori Neslond" you get a point. and while it would be to easy to review it and find my intended solution: the point is Myvatn Airport. i think it is only a small meadow as usual in iceland, but Google Earth signs it as an airport.

btw: very nice and interesting country!

Andy, all I'm seeing in the secret box is a little box with a question mark.

Can you attach your picture as a seperate file please? Thanks.

Appearantly it's time for some hints.

It seemed to me that many of the previous locations were identified by people who had been there in person. To give everyone an equal chance, I chose a place I believe nobody here has visited. It's the capital of a country.
