Where am I ?
« 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...

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.

They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.

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?

Not Madison...but I'm looking forward to seeing Madison from that view someday.
