    Default Where is this? Part 2

    I started a new thread for this because the other one was getting messy.

    So the question is... Where is this?

    It would have been difficult to be further off, only so far you can go before you start getting closer again.

    New Zealand is close, but Able Tazman would like you to do a little more exploring.

    You are giving it away. Since I just posted one I'll give someone else a chance before I jump in.

    It is "The Nut" in at Stanley Tasmania, voted Tasmania's Tidiest Town several times. I guess that was too easy, but no, I haven't posted that picture here before as far as I can remember, perhaps someone else.

    You can see a walking track winding its way up the front side, there is also a cute little chair lift.

    Now its your turn Gillymaru.

    I think this is the Sydney Harbour Bridge - taken from an unusual angle.

    That is correct. Are you able to get the correct town ?

    Hint - it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was a major trading town a few hundred years ago.

    But since you asked.....

    Its Hoi An (Hue). The Japanese Bridge.
    That is correct.

    I am sure you can come up with something that will baffle us.

    This one is going to take some time, it looks like lots of places in British Columbia, especially the west coast of Vancouver Island looking out towards an offshore island.

    Hell, I'll guess that it is a view of Vargas Island from somewhere around Tofino BC. Probably a hemisphere or two off base.

    Pretty sure it's not the B.C. coast. I'm also pretty sure guessing where it's not doesn't count

    I figure that if I work my way around all of the coast lines in the world I'll eventually get there.
