There kind of needs to be some recognizable feature or other clue to get things started, I think...

btw joining Photobucket.com, uploading your pics there and pasting the IMG CODE link into your post is the best way to put pictures up. PB automatically sizes pics so they don't load oversize. You get 2G free space, and no spam comes out of joining.

It`s been rebuilt in the recent years, but it is a century old.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It's also known as the Sea Bridge. That should be enough to get it.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

While I still can't locate the picture, the thought of a road called "Amber" evokes images of Roger Zelazny's science fiction/Fantasy novels and I have often wished I could find a road that will lead me to Amber
Are we in the United Kingdom?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The Amber Road connected bronze age baltic traders to southern Europe. I may be over thinking this!

Are we in northern Europe?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

There you have it, capt. vimes got it correct. The Palanga Pier is a popular tourist point since the 1890`s and Rich With history of the Amber Road and very interesting for those who are interested in ancient travel and trade. You can still sometimes find small bits of amber on the Beach.

The floor is Yours capt.
