    Re: What place is this?

    Not Albany, nor anywhere near it. Good luck with the fishing!

      Re: What place is this?

      What's really bugging me is the fact i am sure Ivy's posted this image elsewhere on the forum, i am sure i have seen it, i have spent ages searching but i'm darned if i can find it!

        I had somehow not looked at this thread until a couple of days ago, recognised what/where the photo was, but wondered if I might be banned from this particular puzzle due to unfair advantage of specialist knowledge!!!!
        However, having completely failed to identify a mystery fossil thingy in Ivy’s photo thread, it is probably now ok for me to put you all out of your misery

        Stromatolites at Shark’s Bay, Hamelin Pool, Western Australia.

          Correct, Cecilia. And Steve, you could have seen this photo at #36 plus a further view from the same area at #46, (which Pakarang actually liked, to my great surprise) both in the Best Landscape Photos thread. My short piece about stromatolites with this picture and a close-up of them is also on the Home Page at http://www.captainsvoyage.com/captai...d_stories.html
          So now, over to Cecilia.

            Oh Ivy, it was on the CV mother site that i had seen your photo! No wonder i could not find it on the forum. I knew i had seen it somewhere!

            Well done Cecillia. And having a knowledge on any subject is not a reason for barring anyone, sometimes just that sort of thing is just what the doctor ordered to find the answer. And it makes such a nice change for someone other than the 'which place is this' regulars to solve a puzzle. We can look forward to you setting us a puzzle!

              I was giggling when I mentioned being banned Steve ….though perhaps I should have been as punishment for not participating for ages!!!! … but somehow these puzzles get neglected with so many things I’ve promised to post and still not got round to!

              Well, let’s see how you do with this….

                Re: What place is this?

                Cecilia, is this a tower for a specific use, particularly well-known in Scotland at one time?

                  Let me add one more question. Is that smoke, what we see here, or is it fog. And if it is smoke, has it something to do with the tower?

                    Ivy: specific use Yes, well-known in Scotland No
                    Ralf: It is smoke, and yes the smoke has something to do with the tower.

                      Interesting building, first thought was somesort of smokehouse, but the windows make me think otherwise. And i am trying to workout what the thin tall window/opening is for, i think that may be key to solving this one.

                          No, not a lighthouse janihudi, and not a smokehouse Steve.
                          But Steve, yes, that thin tall window opening is indeed significant!

                            This is like the mysterious Chimney on Labuan. Nobody appears to know what it was built for.

                            The Chimney. Standing at 106 feet high, The Chimney is Labuan’s most famous landmark erected in the 1800s. The purpose of this chimney remains a mystery but a recent archaeological research found no indication that it served as a chimney.
                            But that it is obviously not it. (The shape is not right)

                            Could this be an old kiln to burn ceramic, bricks, or even charcoal??

                            PS> Or is it a smoke oven of industrial size??

                              Certainly a mystery at the moment, i have also thought along the lines of charcoal burning, no luck with that so far. And have even thought about seismology and meteorology, but again, no luck with those ideas either. Tis a good one this.

                                Really thrilled to have got the star puzzlers truly puzzled, and with a photo of my own too!!!!!!
                                Well lets see …it’s nothing to do with kilns…not only not ceramic , bricks and charcoal, but not a kiln at all!
                                There could be said to be a meteorological connection, but that is only a connection…the prime purpose isn’t meteorological.

                                As for location, well I already said no to “well known in Scotland”, but I’ve decided to be EXTRA GENEROUS and tell you that it is also not in Scotland!!!!!!!!!!
