Nice Quiz! I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing and I typed Amsterdam for Netherlands. I was confused when it worked.

Both Coliseum and Colosseum are acceptable spellings. I used this wonderful new website called Wikipedia to look it up.

Being a bit 'nitpicky' there Rade, the country shown is nearly all Croatia, with a tiny bit of other places. Very hard to show a satellite photo of a country with exact boundaries. Surprised you got to 71 with that outlook.

Quizmaster should add the "Dear nitpickers, if multiple countries appear on the image, name the one that has the largest area on the image" caveat to every satellite image quiz. (I might have changed the wording a bit because I don't remember it exactly)

It is a satelite image, it is impossible to have an image of a country without have some part of another country on it. Unless it is an island surrounded by water

Wikipedia says coliseum is how you spell the building in general, and Colosseum is how you spell the building in Rome (which is still a coliseum).

Bay of Biscay doesn't work, only Biscay itself - thought I was going mad trying to spell Biscay different ways and it turns out it was the Bay of bit that was wrong.

yes it looks weird like that (the answer shown) though it is an acceptable spelling variation apparently. Atleast colosseum is accepted.

(your way of writing is wrong anyway ;) it is one l and 2 s's. It is from colos(sus))

Perhaps the peninsula pic should be cropped a little more closely as the entirety of the Normandy peninsula, arguably more famous, at least in the USA, is also shown.
