OK... will try this one... Near what famous place would you find this gentle setting?

Apologies if I've used this before, but, just in case we have some new players here, maybe it won't be olden to them. And if I have used it, I changed the ratio so maybe it will throw off the vets like @stagor... although that would be highly unlikely! :laugh:

Hi Dan/Stan, would this be close too/in the Park and Palacio Nacional De Pena in Portugal?
Well done @Alberta Dave ... it is indeed. For anyone who has been to see the famous Pena Palace you will know that parking is at a premium... and that there are no flat spots. My wife was horribly ill during the latter half of this trip back In 2017 but she was determined to see everything. This particular shot was right at the base of a walking switchback that on that day seemed to go on forever. It was just too tranquil a shot to pass up... and was one of the few spots where we weren’t blasted with those damn tourists... 😂 no wait... that would have been us too 🤭

Portugal is definitely one of the spots we hope to make it back to some day. Such a warm and friendly people and a beautiful country too.

Over to you Dave!

Thanks Dan, I would love to go to Portugal as well..should have done it before I moved over the Canada but as usual we are wise after the event :).

Here's my latest one for your perusal. Where in Canada is this house and who used to live there?

@Alberta Dave nice shot... much better than the one that they have on their website. Looks like a nice area to do some hiking

I’ll wait for others to nab this one though as I don’t have any photos handy... and sadly no time right now to find any... give me about a month though and as some guy once said, “I’ll be back!”

Glad you had a nice visit!

Upon checking, several of the images I had lined up appear substantially more difficult to identify than I'd anticipated. Don't have time at the moment for an archive rummage so, if anyone would like to post a location, please be my guess. Otherwise I'll get something up in a few hours.

We like the seaside shots on here, so where is this?

Thanks, David. Our trip was blessed with lovely blue skies and low temps due to the easterly blowing in from the North Sea!

Don't think this will take long (Stan!), but where can this garden and statues be found?

I think the person who laid out this garden must have been very capable.
