    Please!

    More hints (pics) please!

    I vote Canada. I would vote California, but since you live there, I doubt it.

    Re: Where Am I?

    These shots remind me of some I've seen from Newfoundland and Labrador, so I'll just say Canada for now unless we have to be more specific.

    Re: Where Am I?

    I have no idea. I'm for sure it isn't Kentucky. Where ever it is hope you have a great time. I wish I had some scenery like that to shot for a change.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    My guess would be somewhere near Whistler, BC.

    Oh, BTW, Did you hear about Francois? He had a pretty nasty wreck at Demo yesterday. There is a big thread on the Norcal board.

    Obviously, you've never fully explored Indiana

    I have no idea where it is, but from the looks of it I'd like to be there too. Sure looks a lot cooler than so cal right now!

    More Hints

    Anyone know what city this is or what mountain range is in this photo?

    First one to accurately name where I am gets a book from the massive PhotographyREVIEW.com library. And just for the record, I'll be amazed if anyone can do it.

    Photo Quality

    I apologize if the photo quality is questionable. I'm working off my laptop and having some color management issues.

    Re: Where Am I?

    In those first photos posted, my eyes wandered to the abandoned(?) buildings along the shore. I'd run through the UER LDB, but that'd take forever.

    But I'm going to say Canada, somewhere along the west coast of BC.

    The city, possibly Vancouver.

    Gregg caught me on the phone in the airport and told me. I hope he's ok. I'll check the Nor Cal board. Thanks for the heads up about the thread. Are there pictures? I heard it was ugly. But I hope someone took pictures anyway.

    Re: Where Am I?

    I'm going to guess the first pictures are from the Columbia River Gorge, and the mountain range in the second set is the Cascades, but I have no idea what city that is.
