Re: Guess The Place #220

Please tell us where this photo was taken. Also the name of the body of water in the distance (which you will probably have to know to get the PoV).

This is a panorama stitched from seven portrait-oriented photos.

Since this is likely to be hard, I'll give a clue: The photos were taken around 2 PM on August 18, 2009. I have been able to find one online image that is similar, and none through Google's various components. Accordingly, the original image is at full resolution so you can study it.

Those who have hiked a lot may know this right away.

Re: Guess The Place #220

Could that be Mono Lake, California?

That could be Mono Lake in the distance to the northeast - we appear to be on the Mono Pass Trail by Upper Sardine Lake.

The next turn should go to Mark if right.

Well, not as difficult as I thought. I looked for Google panos along there and didn't find any. Yes, this was Mono Pass, on the Mono Pass Trail, at the top of Bloody Canyon and at an altitude of a little over 10,000', at the extreme eastern end of Yosemite NP in California. This is an area of the park that is not very much visited except by those wanting high altitude hiking. The photo also looks toward the northeast, as hinted by my statement of the time of day.

So, Mark, you get the next shot.

I've been there!  However, I'm not visiting DPR as much as I used to.

I've only visited that area once or twice, but I lived in California for years. Even before I saw the lake, I immediately thought that looked like the Golden State, up in the Sierra Nevada. And when I looked closer at the lake, its shape reminded me of Mono.

Re: Guess The Place #220

This doesn't look like the Langelinie, so I suppose this is one of the many copies around the world.

Hi Kjeld, how about the Little Mermaid statue at Carlsberg Breweries in Copenhagen, Denmark? That could be a small part of the fountain perimeter showing in your photo - but I might well be wrong.

Please offer a free turn if right as I'm busy today.

Indeed it is the one at the Carlsberg Breweries

I used to work there for some 20 years and passed by regularly.

The place claims to be in London, but it is not really.

So, not as easy as I thought it would be apparently

Next clue - this place has a magic atmosphere

This is kind of a store selling ingredients to make special drinks - I think?
