There is some good guessing here. There are indeed some similarities with California.

@everybody: I don't answer lists of places. Just propose one or two places in your messages.

It's definately a French road, not sure where exactly it's from though. Most islands are a bit to small and not smooth enough for such an image. Is it simply in France?

After having looked at GE I doubt it's St. Pierre & Miquelon.

@everybody: I don't answer lists of places. Just propose one or two places in your messages.
So, The place, or the weather is similar to California, that brings to my mind only three places. That road must be in Central or Northern France, Central Chile or Baja California in Mexico. But the road is not Mexican. So it must be on Central or Northern France or Central Chile. .
That place can not be on the Tropics, it must be around the 40°N or 40°S.

I agree, if only southern France is eliminated, so then, the road is in France isn't it???

Q:
Southern France? Near the Pyrenees or something?
A:
Nope.

Mountains can only be found in the southern part of the French mainland, so everybody eliminated mainland France.

Q:
Maybe it's on one the overseas French islands? Réunion perhaps?
A:
Réunion perhaps? No.
(First part of the question unanswered.)

Q:
My best shot would be Reunion or some other French overseas Department.
A:
unanswered

ElviS77 had eliminated France in what was called a “deductive reasoning“.
No further comment on the elimination, so from this moment on everybode assumed this list.
(A bit childish not to mention anything about France being on this elimination-list while at the same moment giving the idea ElviS77 did good work, just for my two cents)

Q:
Wait a second, ITS CORSICA!
A:
Better guess, but no.

Q:
I guess some French overseas territory.
A:
(unanswered)

Q:
I hope it's none of the French overseas territories, as they are all considered parts of France, which we've already eliminated, even New Caledonia.
A:
“France, which we've already eliminated” - Only southern France was eliminated.

Q:
I would try some french territories then (but anyway those are parts of France)
A:
unanswered


Well, I'm out of this.
This kind of answering is very annoying.

notice taht brisavoine is active rather on french forums so it's very probable it is one of french overseas collectivities (not departments casues those are considered part of France)...

so maybe:

- French Polynesia

or

- Saint Berthelemy ?

Two things... First, I only reposted the list someone else had made, not bothering to check whether all of all countries had been excluded. Second, as long as this is a "guess the country", not "guess the bleeding zip code", game, a decent hint would have been to suggest a revisit of the "not" list. Or simply concede defeat the first time someone mentioned France... if France indeed was correct?

France has no colonies, everything is part of France.

A colony is by definition part of the mother country. France has plenty of colonies. A colony ceases to be a colony when it becomes independant. ie: India is a former colony of the UK

Anyway. It looks like mainland France to me. Oviously not southern France though

And the winner is...

Kokpit



The mystery road was indeed in New Caledonia. I don't have the exact location, but from the look of it it's the dry western coast of New Caledonia, where white settlers (the "broussards") raise cattle.

I thought many people would have recognized the typical French road markings and French electricity poles earlier...

@ElviS77: This game is about guessing a road, so it seems logical for the person who posts the picture to answer proposals of places (one or two places per message, not lists) and not to comment on elimination lists. Elimination lists are the responsability of those who make them. It's not complicated for each person to read the thread and see which country or region has been eliminated, and which hasn't.
