Gee, that'll be a difficult one.

Is it ocean water we see? (as opposed to water of a sea)

My question is Africa?

Just thinking that myself, Lily - unless the difference is something akin to the Mediterranian or Red Sea etc as opposed to the Pacific, Atlantic etc Oceans. Not sure if that is what Hans meant or not but that would be how I view it. (Excuse the typos, I'm writing this down rather quickly).

Lily, the water is the same but the hidden question was of course: is it ocean coast or seacoast (i.e. it's not South-America which borders oceans on both sides, get it?)

Question: Asia?

Spacedog: great photo....is it in one of the northern states of the US (Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon etc - around that area?)

Mine is Canadian Rockies?

We had a minor discussion on this one as to where it is.
