Windows Spotlight Challenge

It’s a lot of fun trying to look for Windows Spotlight locations in FS 2020. Here are a few locations that I have visited. Hope the community would keep this thread going with new additions. I am reposting this from the thread “What did you do in MSFS today?”

Saw this in Windows Spotlight and decided to visit in FS 2020.

Saw this in Windows 10 Spotlight when I turned on the PC:

Cool! Let’s make the windows spotlight challenge contagious.

Very exciting to hunt for the picture.
It’s not that easy to find the same angle.

Cemoro Lawang village, Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park, East Java, Indonesia

Maybe we should also post a map of the route /airports together with the pictures.
I’ll look up this one tomorrow.

This is a fantastic idea. The azores one was my startup pic just a few days ago. Neato.
