Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Is this river a boundary with Canadian Land? was this picture captured in the morning?

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

It is nowhere near Canada, not even on the American continent...
and the images were taken early afternoons...

the water in front of this beach is a river...
and canada is the wrong side of the pond, but the right hemisphere...
I'm the turtle of the game. Now I understand the pond must be the Atlantic, so the ground in question must be Europe, but it took me many steps to get to this point. Now I will have to search in all "sailable" rivers, which have very cold winters, and hope pictures of google map will show something alike.

Sorry to be so late but I'm installing a new fuel tank (diesel) on the ole IP-31. The aluminum tank developed a leak after 29 years. Found a nice Moeller poly tank (23 gal.) that fits well where the old one came out. I do leave some "riddler" clues now and then rather that identifying the photo. For me, the fun is in the hunt, not the solution. Oh.... if you find a good Fishmarket, stop there and have a look.
