It is not Canada, nor somewhere in the USA, Mexico or Chile.

@Fuzzy Llama: you were very much in the right direction, it wasn't Finland however...

That's correct, it's the E6. However you know that the north of Norway is quite a big area and the E6 is quite a long road. Can you name the two places this stretch of road is inbetween ?

(I mean the first village you encounter in both directions from the photo point of view - please no answers like "E6 between Oslo and Kirkenes"...)

E6 between Oslo and Kirkenes
No, probably between E8 to Tromso and Alta.

Yes, I know Actually, Finnmark Fylke alone is bigger than Denmark ;> To just guess randomly.

However, I have no idea were it could be, so I'll say between Lakselv and Karasjok :>

Thompe was most nearby: only 175 km west of the location.

Here you have the link to Streetview...:

There are not many sections on E6 running through the treeless tundra. That is why I am guessing the place is Sennaland between Alta and Skaidi.

The answer was already given in my post of 9.16 PM above.

It was between Bugoyfjord and Skoltebyen.

1 - yes, Hungary is right
2 - It is not M15 (Hint: it is not an M-road)

For the others, a "larger-scale" explanation: this road (in the shown direction) is usually taken by drivers heading towards the Austrian border from Lake Balaton.

For about the last 20 years, there has been continuous planning and discussion about a "Southern Motorway" connecting the country's Western border with Lake Balaton to ease access for tourists. However, nothing of this has been realized yet.
