Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That was quite the chase... needle in haystack along that stretch!!

Change of pace: We took an enjoyable daytrip starting and ending here.. on the vessel pictured last. Thought the 'dinghy' was interesting!! It was a 7 or 8 hour round trip, very inexpensive (about $20/head) with several stops along the way.

Looking for the town where these shots were taken.

Inland, continental Europe (cars look like they are on the right side). Probably on a canal, where the "dinghy" could be put to use. France is a place to start?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Awesome pictures. At first I thought it was the canals back in the Midlands in the U.K. but the architecture looks a bit off, so my guess is Denmark and Copenhavn?

That was pretty Sneeky, Faster, but I found it. Here's a frontal view of the gate shown from the side in your second photo:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Apparently you'll have to go to Panoramio - Photo of Sneek.

BTW, Google Maps and Google Earth don't recognize "Sneek", but you can Google it!

Sneek (pronounced 'SNAKE') is it.. well done once again, Fallard. GE did recognize and find just 'sneek' for me.

This was an excellent day trip.. some of the sights:





This was the lunch time traffic jam waiting for the bridgekeeper to get back on duty!





Seconds after this next shot was taken, this German chartered boat got caught on our stern wave while attempting to pass too close.. struck the port quarter of our boat quite hard, and did some damage to his own gunwale and bow rail.. its was a bit of a shocker but you could see it coming!



Our return was via the much busier (commercially) Princess Margeriet Canal.



Fallards up next!!
