Wanted to do this for a long time.

It goes like this: you post a photo of some part of the world, and others will try and guess the country. Nature is preferable, but cities are okay, I guess. If 5 posts get it wrong, someone else can post another photo.

Naturally, I'll go first. Hint: it's somewhere in Europe.

And the hint for this one is: it's somewhere in North America

The answer is California.
The giant rock is Moro Rock. Named so by the Spainish settlers due to it reminding them of a turban, a hat Moors (the Muslims that use to inhabit southern Spain) wore.

This will be an odd one:

Some may immediately recognise the place (or at least the country) based on the event happening. Otherwise, a keen eye may be able to narrow down the region from clues.

Closer, but not quite.

The town was Vrontados, on the Greek island Chios.

The event was Rouketopolemos, where two rival churches launch fireworks are each other every Easter and count who hit the other belfry the most.
