Title: Where am I ?
Post by: Northstar on August 18, 2012, 06:50:58 PM
I thought it would be fun to post pics of places you've been, but with a catch, make us guess where you are!

Here I am at the lake taking a shot of......?   For those of you that have been here, you'll know what city this is!

For those that haven't been here....the hint would be, that's a pretty big lake right near a major metro...and it' not the only one!

Everybody...take a guess OR post your own pic/clue and have others take a guess!

Never takes more than a moment for people to realise where this is, but it's certainly not the usual view...

@Northstar, Looks like Brisbane Australia?

North star, looks like Madison, WI from north side of lake Mendota.   Been 90s since I was last there, don't recall such high buildings or such tall trees on the beach.  Anyway that's my guess.

@Khristo - great shot!  I've been up the Eiffel Tower and this really captures the feeling of how high it really is.

Minneapolis, from Lake Calhoun. (I'm from St. Paul)

I like the idea of this thread. Will be interesting to see shat shows up.

mws...you nailed it, easy if you're from MN to get the mpls skyline, but "good eye" on the lake calhoun.

87, considering your "written accent" - you got it.  Are you living here now and what country are you from?

Well done, easy for anyone who's been there as the building of Rex Hotel is the object and with the new high rise in the back drop. This I took the other day as I had to go down there for some business. Didn't bring my DSLR though so this shot is taken with my G11.

Nope. I've never been there. I'm an US citizen. In fact, the only midwest state I've even been to was Illinois, and that was 20 years ago.

I think you'll have to give us a pretty good clue on this one...there's not enough info in the pic.  But the water sure is blue, could be many places in canada, alaska, great lakes, and/or northern europe.

Post by: Northstar on August 22, 2012, 10:16:19 AM
OP here...folks - when posting your image, try to have some detail in the image....a skyline, a landmark, a well known structure...etc.   

The shot of Cologne is a perfect example....also the Eiffel tower.  I challenge you to dig into your vacation photos or your LR library and post a great shot of somewhere you've been.

if you haven't been to Minneapolis, then how did you get this...google search?

First one is correct (Lake Tahoe).  As far as the second one, it is not Las Vegas, but it does feel hotter than Vegas (and is a major city).

MrKorney,

The second pic is downtown Houston taken from Elenore Tinsley Park along Buffalo Bayou.  I am currently looking out my office window at the park just to right of the camera view.
