I got WoGE #321 rather quickly, so I feel a little guilty. Perhaps because I was actually trying to work at the time. But I saw @FelixBossert tweet about it, took a peek and instantly recognised it as a drumlin field from the British Isles. Spotting the bit of sea on the right hand side helped me narrow it down quickly to Donegal in the north of Ireland. As it turned out I’ve drunk Guinness, if not in the actual image, at least nearby.
To assuage my irrational guilt, I’ve tried to put this post up nice and quick. Also I’ve chosen an area that, as far as I’m aware, none of you players of the game have drunk Guinness in. I won’t guess how hard it is, but I’ll not invoke the Schott Rule, so no restrictions.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, you are in for a treat! This is a game that is an excellent excuse to trawl through Google Earth. Rules are best expressed here, but in summary, look at the entire Earth’s surface until you find the area shown in this picture. Then find out about its Geology. Then add the location and Geological description in the comments. If you are first, you get the honour of hosting the next one. If you are a veteran WoGEr, this is the first one I’ve hosted on my new blog, so please look around while you’re firing up Google Earth.
I’m looking for a mention of a fairly specific piece of Geology, but this may be a little ambitious of me. We’ll see, but enjoy the lovely picture any way (click on it for a bigger one). The image is rotated so that the North arrow is pointing to somewhere between 9 and 10 o’clock. Or a vertical arrow on the image points east, if that makes more sense.
PS this post vanished and was hosted by Felix for a short while due to technical difficulties, thanks again Felix.
