I copied this from Wickedpedia:
Fahrenheit remains the official scale for the following countries: the Bahamas,[2] Belize,[3] the Cayman Islands,[4] Palau,[citation needed] and the United States and associated territories (Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Canada retains it as a supplementary scale that can be used alongside Celsius.

Moreover, the photo is not in the US or any possessions or territories.

Is it the view from the Gibb's Hill lighthouse on Bermuda?

It absolutely is, Zeil. You must have a crystal ball. Your turn now.

Your hints (not the US, Western hemisphere) worked better than my crystal ball. It didn't look like Mexico or Latin America, so I took stab at Bermuda. With some help from Google Earth, it wasn't hard to find.

Let's see if there are enough clues in this picture to figure out the location:

Don't know cos you guys seem to have an ability to make the tropics look cold.

Has to be US cos the boats are looking very American and it looks cold so I'm thinking east coast mid to upper probably Chesapeka somewhere.

OK .... so how far off am I ?

That's probably because this is not in tropics

You're on the right track but about 500 nm off...
