Friday Mystery Place – vol 26

A gate, but where?

Sorry for being a day late…  Or course, last week’s Friday Mystery Place was one of the easier ones and there was a correct answer pretty quickly from James McEwan of Fiction Illuminates Truth, who knew that it was Nubble Lighthouse on Cape Neddick and shared some background information on this oft-photographed location.

This week should prove a smidge more difficult…

Where do these canons stand?

I think that guessing the country is pretty straightforward; the city may be more difficult…

I’m curious to find who can identify this gate without resorting to a Google image search 🙂

Technical Details

This image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D Mk II and an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens.  The exposure settings were at 1/125 seconds at f/10 and 400 ISO.

Open air location

Last week’s location was the Markthal in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, which is a stunning piece of architecture and high on my list of remommended places to go to when visiting Rotterdam.

Today, we go to a much older location, which I think will be identified by at least some of my readers.

This location is rife with mystical energy and a stunning piece of old architecture.  Where are we?

Enjoy!

Not of this planet?

After last week’s rather tricky post for this category, which long-time readers of my blog, could have recognized as being photographed outside the Botanical Garden of the Technical University in Delft, the Netherlands, something a little easier upon my return from quick travels.

Otherworldly Mystery

As a hint, if needed, this location was used recently in a big budget film; the latter gave me the idea to use this image, as I saw it during my flight from Rome to Boston.

Have fun!

Where’s the bird?

As I’m travelling at the time of this publication, I’m taking a bit of an unfair shortcut…  There will be some travel photos, but for right now, I’m sharing a photo from one of my travels last year.  If you can correctly identify where I captured this image, more kudos to you.

I will give you a hint in that the answer can be found in one of my earlier posts…

Looks like a pretty good seat

Since I am in a pretty generous mood today, this week’s mystery place is pretty easy… Of course, you might be thinking ‘Famous last words’.

Where was I?

Where is this seat located?  It will be even more impressive, if you can prove that you have sat in this seat…

Good luck and start your guesses!

Friday Mystery Place – vol 11

Late for lunch!

Dear Reader, last week’s challenge was a bit devilish, but clearly not hard enough, as several of you figured it out; you are impressive!  This week’s location should not be too hard to guess…

Which lovely place is this?

This location was one that I almost overlooked in my travels, as I had not put it on the itinerary.  As my wife and I were driving to our next stop on our travels, and in truth we were looking for some spot to eat some lunch, I caught this beauty out of the corner of my eye, as it was a bit obscured by foliage.

We figured out where we could find access to the location and had a fun time exploring it; lunch was served late, and delicious!

Where are we?

Friday Mystery Slide – vol 8

Pigeons are everywhere…

As it happened, I came across some of my old slides last night after I had a short guitar practice (not been feeling that great this week, which cut into my practice time); these were from the late 1980’s and there are some interesting ones, as some came from a business trip.

Where are these folks?

I am confident that many among you can identify the country, where I captured this image, but how many among you can identify the city?

Good luck with your investigation!!
