I dug around in the photos posted by that same photographer on Shutterstock, and found this landscape image. The peak in the landscape appears to be the same peak as in the photo of the hikers. In the images below, I've circled five of the features that I'm basing this on.
The distinctive snow-capped peak in the landscape ...
Looks like a "Temporary lane closure".
The situation in Winchester, you referred to, supports this.
See another example from gov.uk
Temporary lane closure (the number and position of arrows and red bars may be varied according to lanes open and closed)
Other posters have correctly answered that these are gasometers. But it's worth noting that they are no longer used at all; they were built when the UK mainly used town gas, which needed to be stored, but since the 1970s we have switched entirely to natural gas, which is piped in directly. Gasometers are now obsolete, and many of them have been demolished. ...
Hallstätter See (a lake in Austria)
Source: Google Image Search
Hallstätter See or Lake Hallstatt is a lake in the Salzkammergut, Austria, located at 47°34′43″N 13°39′38″E. It is named after Hallstatt, a small market town in Austria, famous for its salt mining since prehistoric times and the starting point of the world's oldest and still working ...
I found these six landmarks in the image that lined up nicely with each other:
Then I created a map where I found roughly the coordinates of these landmarks, and drew lines straight through them:
As you can see, these three lines intersect nicely at a single point (at approximately 49.746°N 123.056°W, marked in yellow), which should be approximately the ...
That is a sidewalk vestibule. The idea is to have an extra door between the building's interior and the outside, so as to reduce the amount of air exchanged when people go in and out. In winter, warm air stays inside and cold air stays outside, reducing the building's heating costs and avoiding uncomfortable drafts for diners sitting near the door.
In a curious coincidence, there was a question about this part of France just a few hours ago.
You are looking at the Noirmoutier area of France, which in the past was one of the world's premier regions for the production of Fleur de Sel:
a salt that forms as a thin, delicate crust on the surface of seawater as it evaporates.
It is produced thus:
They are artificially lit greenhouses. The artificial light escapes through their transparent roofs.
Some of them were presumably not (yet?) illuminated when you saw them, perhaps because it wasn't yet completely dark or because the crop in the greenhouse was at the wrong point of its growth. Note that some of the white buildings in the satellite image on ...
It looks like it's Vernazza, one of the Cinque Terre - five very cute and colourful towns on the Italian coast. The photo seems to be shot as much the same as this image, but flipped for some reason:

To expand other answers: judging from the angle (Chain Bridge's east pillar appearing exactly below Margaret Bridge's middle pillar on Margaret Island), the picture was most probably taken from the Gellért Hill in Budapest, at about this point:

I believe either they edited the railing in later, or the ...
It is Aiguille du Midi station near to Mont Blanc, accessed from Chamonix in the French Alps, department Haute-Savoie. (See it on Google Maps)

It's the top station of the Aiguille du Midi cable car, and also one of the two end points of the Panoramic Mont-Blanc gondola, which runs ...
This is New York City - looking east across the Hudson from New Jersey.
A similar viewpoint is available from google maps
Probably from around Port Imperial Blvd just north of the Lincoln Tunnel.
Your photo seems to be from a position a little further south than this one though - a bit closer to the tunnel - judging by the angles of the piers.
You can eventually follow the link you sent out to the photographer's Flickr website:
In the discussion area, it looks to be from an area in Te Mata Peak in Havelock North, New Zealand.
This is a detector of radioactive materials (to make sure passengers are not carrying anything radioactive), possibly model "TSA PM700" from Rapiscan Systems.
From the site:
A high sensitivity walk-through radiation portal monitor to automatically scan pedestrian traffic for radioactive materials.

It's a former railroad line called the Vennbahn.
It appears that way on the map because the former railroad and right-of-way were and still are Belgian territory. That creates the two exclaves of Germany within Belgium in the picture, though there are currently 5.
Seems the trackline has since been removed and paved as a cycle path.

It's the Azadi Tower in Tehran, Iran.
You can easily use the Google image search (just drag & drop the file into the browser window when you have it open), which will show many results for such a clear picture.
This is the Kalantarov's house from the early 20th century. The exact address is 27 Lado Asatiani Street , in the Sololaki district, just under Sololaki mountain where Narikhala stands. The closest underground station is Tavisuplebis Moedani.
It was designed by architect K.A. Sarkisyan and built in 1908 for Michail Kalantarov, a rich merchant living in ...
It is a hanger, you can hang your jacket or anything similar there. The same exact ones typically available in lavatories for passengers and in galleys for crew members. In the passengers cabin, they are usually available in first or business classes' seats and it comes with a sign:
I guess they forgot to add the sign, making it harder for passenger to know ...

The whole point of the song is to mock Gangnam poseurs, and some of the humor in the video comes from showing Psy somewhere that turns out to be a rather some ordinary, unglamorous place— a neighborhood playground instead of an elite resort, a public bath instead of the pool at a fancy sports club, the subway instead of an excusive nightclub, etc. It would ...
According to this map from the Nuclear Threat Initiative (2006), your GPS reading at the western bend of the road between Rasht and Qazvin corresponds almost perfectly to "Mo-Allem Kalayeh: Suspected nuclear research center".
However! This (ancient) page gives the site's coordinates as 36°26'05"N 50°29'53"E, which is a) a lot closer to where Wikipedia ...

I finally found one of these boxes that had clear enough text.
It looks like these boxes are called ごみ収集ステーション which translated is 'Garbage Collection Station'.
It looks like the notice is also describing different types of waste and explaining how they are sorted. Perhaps collections are picked up on different days depending on their type.
