(CNN) -- [Updated 4:45 p.m. Monday, January 23] The photo above shows a couple of Swiss soldiers shoveling snow in Davos, Switzerland.

Davos is the annual meeting place of the World Economic Forum, a Swiss nonprofit that brings together political leaders, business leaders and global experts to discuss pressing issues and possible solutions. Delegates have previously included philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates, rock star Bono and former U.S. President Bill Clinton.

This year's meeting starts Wednesday and continues through Sunday. The eurozone crisis is expected to be a major theme.

CNN, led by Richard Quest and John Defterios, will deliver daily interviews and insight from Davos this week. Fareed Zakaria, host of Fareed Zakaria GPS, will also be at Davos.

In our CNN photo challenge, many of you correctly guessed Switzerland. But reader "(null)" was the first to answer with Davos, so he or she gets all the glory this week.

[Original post] Do you know where this photo was taken?

If you think you know the answer -- or if you just want to take a wild guess -- post it in the comments area below. Later in the day, we'll reveal where the photo was taken and give credit to those who figured it out first. (The more detail, the better!)

Each Monday morning, we'll post a new photo and challenge you to tell us its origin. The photo might be related to a prominent news story or theme -- or it might just be something that caught our eye.

Good luck!
