WoGE #454

A preemptive posting this time, since although I solved Luis' WoGE #453 by accidentally looking at Dek Island in Tana Lake, Ethiopia, he hasn't confirmed it yet. But weekend starts very soon, and I expect to be very busy next week, so here it is:

I will only add that I have no idea how that thing ended up where it is!

A week later, a hint seems to be needed!

This is the same thing, looking due east:

Unlike glaciers, these things do not have a habit of forming on mountain tops.

Another week, another hint:

This is outside the area shown in the first two, but should at least get you to the correct continent.

For any new players to Where on (Google) Earth, simply post a comment with latitude and longitude and write something about the (geologic/geographic/hydrographic) feature in the picture. If you win, you get to host the next one. Previous WoGEs are collected by Felix on his blog and a KML file.

  1. You did well, Ole! I've been away and couldn't "certify" your victory!

  2. Sand dunes on top of a mountain? Yes, it's possible! This is one: Cerro Blanco, near Nazca, Peru!

    This white-sand dune stands as a beacon from Nazca and all the surrounding area and some say that's the second highest dune in the world.

    I couldn't find out much about its geology (it keeps popping a chilean mine), only a reference to fossil whales.

    (By the way, here's hint n.º 2)

  3. You got it again, Luis!

    I too have tried to find out anything about the formation of Cerro Blanco, but drawn a blank (no pun intended). Nevertheless it is there, and it's geology. :)

    Over to Luis.

  4. Thanks Ole!

    Tuesday morning I should have #455 ready in my WoGE-blog!
