Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Those crazy northern Europeans…always on the lookout for ANY place to catch some sun. I should know, I’m one of them

Regardless, that is an impressive picture, especially considering the industrial development on the south side of the river, I checked it out on google: https://maps.google.com/maps?ll=53.5...32093&t=h&z=14.

Does anyone know whether the water quality of the river is really good enough for swimming?

It is safe to go swimming there, just do not drink too much of it...
In case of floodings upriver it could get unhealthy with too much bacterias in it...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Considering that I'm writing this response, as I did my guess, from just a couple of kilometers away, it wasn't that great an act of intuition, the hint about the river made it "click" for me.

here's my next picture:

Dunno. But you know when you have got to the end of that road!

Or is it an airport?!

Holy Cliffs, Batman. That's a long jump for Anna.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I did a google image search with "red cliffs in the sea", and found a picture with same type of cliffs, but different view. There are not many rocks with white horizontal stripes in it.
So that image is giving me a name of Helgoland.

The tall rock column is called Long Anna.
