The size of the windows (and lack of windows) hints at cold too.

also funny - "pont neuf" means "new bridge" and by now it is the oldest bridge in paris...
Ya liked that one eh? ...Let me return the compliment. Your guess on post #3304 of the pillars view outside Naples Italy was impressive. It reminded me of John Steed`s line in the Avengers TV show episode "Dial a Deadly Number" when he guessed a particular wine was made on the northern end of its vineyard. A classic line.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

My apologies good people. I confess I forgot this was me.

OK .... not Germany, wrong hemisphere. Big island, small continent. Something of an historical site.

No worries, Sea.. just teasing.

Looks like you were correct, though, so I'm guessing Burns Bay deep up Sydney harbour. Pretty spot!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Interesting.

Seaduction is in the right area.

That bridge is a major clue.

Fast .... you are going the wrong way.

The Wombet and I love this spot. We have a couple of anchorages only half an hour from our mooring which we visit more often but if we have the time (that bridge limits access and it does not open on request) we head up here. At five knots this spot is an hour and a half from mooring and outside of holiday weekends this is how it looks.

Has to be the Spit Bridge in Middle Harbor, Sydney?
