Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Correct - Holland but not Rotterdam.
This dock is quite well known because of a specific requirement to use it.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm presuming the requirement is either mast in a tabernacle and/or shalow draft.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That walkway is the entrance to the NEMO science centre designed by Renzo Piano.



Amsterdam.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Definitely Amsterdam, Andrew... it's all quite clear on GE - the restaurant, the dock/ramp, the museum fleet etc.

Geoff said not to wait for confirmation so I think you can go with your next one!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sorry for my absence, I just spent the day shoveling snow. Obviously Andrew got it - The sloping steps go to a public park above the Nemo and dock is "public" but reserved for historic vessels.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yes tidal. Obviously on a river. You need to pass under two bridges to get there, the lower of the two having only 15 metre (49') clearance. The second bridge (the lower) was built as a result of a problem with first and is named after a former Attorney General of Australia.
