    Northern hemisphere.

    That's a small autorack loading facility at lower left of the first photo. Looks like closed autoracks, which points to USA. The man made features generally seem consistent with America.

    From the winding waterways in the second photo, I'm inclined to guess somewhere relatively close to the Gulf Coast...

    I poked around Baton Rouge, Louisiana a little. Lot of meandering water ways and stands of trees but no match.

    Yeah, I got some "pretty similar" from both states and Canada and some southeastern states as well ?????
    OK, major North/South & East/ West freeway interchange with a very interesting (unique?) intersection north of the cloverleaf.
    Good size Industrial Park. Meandering East West rivulet.
    Golf Course. Fairly substantial population. Am I seeing pools in those bark yards? Intact Flora around developed areas. Looks like lots of trucking operations and some trains. I think the autos are driving on the right side aren't they? hmmmmm.

    Somewhere in Virginia perhaps? (just a guess going by those dang cloverleaf exit ramps.)

    I pretty much searched the tidelands and farther in following the CSX and NS all over the area and did not find a match.

    It's kind of telling that we can't figure it out easily. So many of our landscapes look so alike in the U.S.
