No, the tree is southern, but the landscape is not - or at least not any southern that I've seen. And Jube had already said Ireland.

Lily, sounds like my kind of stuff-up, I'm always doing something like that.

Brenda, well I'd like to keep playing until someone works it out. Never reveal anything until someone has given you the correct answer. This cheeky brat hasn't done so and I don't know if anyone else has so hence why I said I'd like to keep playing as I'm sure everyone else would like to do so. This is fun and your photo's a good one too!







Question time ........ is it part of Connemara National Park?

That is correct - a YES or No to any questions that arise is enough. For myself, I "talk" too much sometimes

(and yes you should give only yes and no answers unless the question is very hard, then you could give hints according your own view, but not too early of course)

Gaaah. I was going to say Ireland too. The combination of tree and climate sticks it in gulf-stream warmed British Isles, and it doesn't look like Cornwall or Wales...

South down the coastline from Galway itself?

Mohair - think he means Moher - apparently the walking dictionary (me) got confused with what he was asking....






My question is......KILLARNEY NATIONAL PARK?

Oranmore?


One simply loves finding almost the exact photo that the poster (in this instance, Brenda) has posted and the person who posted almost the exact photo doesn't say where in the world, they took it. Hmmm...all they said that it was taken in western Ireland. So much for palm trees or in this instance, Vyon's cabbage tree (radioactive cabbage trees, I'm just not sure about).
