Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

There really aren't too many details in the picture. The sailboats have draw some depth and wouldn't be located in an area where they couldn't sail around a bit. The absolute north and west is flat and doesn't have much in the way of hills. This might be a riverside, so I'll hazard a guess that it might the along the Aller river and hope to get a hint if I'm wrong...

Well know to whom you craft devil? Certainly not to me. After looking through a list , none of them rang any bells.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture
