Nope, but it's in EU... Construction of both of these highways has been sped up because of olympic games in the nearby city

Thanks for the hint, Mapman. But why didn't you just guess it?

I don't have much time nor will to post a new picture, so I just realized that a little hint won't be harmful. BTW Those toll booths at ramps of interchanges were a big hint for me from the european point of view... please, feel free to post a new picture

I was late to start finding. I watched it is tolled if going west, so that could be a hint too.

I guess it's my turn.
If anyone else wants to post something, go ahead. I'm on a weird schedule right now, don't have time to think of something. (But if I knew how to do Google Maps captures....)

To Word? Then what happens?

When I've posted any photos in this thread, the process has been: think of something interesting and distinctive but not too easy; search Google Images for (someone else's) good pix of it; upload chosen picture to my Photobucket account (I think it's Photobucket...this is the only thing I use it for so I'm not there often); upload from Photobucket to this thread; don't forget to credit the source once it's been guessed. Would I save a screen cap as a jpeg or something and then treat it the same way?

Simply use printscreen, then paste it into paint or another photo program and cut out unnecessary or revealing parts (such as coordinates) and save it as .jpg (not png or bmp) then upload it to photobucket or imageshack. Don't forget to name it as "guess.jpg" or something alike and not "interstate95trenton.jpg" or so in order to give away the location.

Because they are unnecessary large for photos and load slower. PNG's should be used for images with few colors, such as flags, logos or simple maps.

Well, I'll bear all that in mind, but I'll need to learn how to use Photoshop as well (what, there's no :blush: smiley?)

So I still yield my turn.

I guess it's me.
(don't look at coordinates, I do not know how to get rid of those)

I don't know how to post it any other way, and I've disabled lables.

Thing is, a Google Maps link should be the answer, not the question.

What I do is: go on to Google Maps, print screen, edit out anything obvious (while still leaving it possible to guess!), save it with a non-obvious filename, upload it somewhere, and post it.

Which leaves something like this for folks to guess (and yes, guess this one away!):

Picture must have been taken out of the back of a bus. I'd ruled out South Africa because it seemed to be a drive-on-the-right country.

Google Street View Cars each have 9 directional cameras, shooting a 360° view... so they also "see" backwards
