Friday Photo Quiz #169 – Where in the World?


Quiz169-

Today is the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere. In scientific terms, it marks the sun's most southerly declination of -23.5 degrees.

Earth's a big place, and strange things happen as our planet moves around the sun. In honor of the solstice, today's quiz photo shows all the big fun you can have at the equator at the vernal equinox, when the sun is directly overhead there.

I can testify, on that day you can stand an egg on end on the head of a nail. Maybe you can on all other days, I can't say. We were only hanging out with this guy on the equinox itself, but still. 

Where is this place? Can you name the country? For a clue, here are the thirteen countries on the equator. The answer is after the break. And congratulations. Days north of the equator begin to get longer now.

With this, we're off for Peru and Easter Island. Photos next week. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and a good weekend to all from CS&W
and EarthPhotos.com.


And
the answer is …………………………………….. this photo is from Ecuador. 

See more photos in the Ecuador Gallery at Earthphotos.com.

And take all the CS&W photo quizzes.
