OK, a bit more off the beaten track...

This one kind of has the look of Patagonia.... or perhaps similar geography in the Northern Hemisphere.. Scandinavia....

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You have some great photos Jon. So...a place that gets too cold for trees, looks volcanic, some kind of institution? Looks almost Icelandic.

You've got it nicely bracketed...

Southern hemisphere, but with a Scandinavian name...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Too bad about the southern hemisphere - I was thinking of some single malt distillery on Islay in the winter...

Could this location be in Argentina?

Pretty good guess, but it's not part of any continent...

Here's another clue...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Very nice picture, that made it go "click" and I looked around the Falklands but with no success, then I thought of the Antarctic mainland, but that is too far south, so I fired up trusty Google maps and found Grytviken in the South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.

I didn't know that Shackleton's Grave was located there!

you've got it, that would have been my last clue, I figured that would have given it away, for sure...




Incredible place, it had been a dream of mine since childhood to one day make it there...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ok, here's a location less remote



It is 18:00 here and I will be heading home, where I only have sporadic internet access, so I might not be able to respond to the thread until tomorrow morning.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Wauw, you all started without letting me know.

I wasn't here for a long time, so first: best wishes to all and a healthy 2013.

I think it is in Arizona, ........ Lake pleasant?
