      Not around Bronnoysund.
      Where picture is taken from is in Nordland, but much of what you see is not in Nordland.

    So the we are on the border from Nordland to Nord-Trondelag? Near Lysfjord?

        ???? Where is Ursjorden?? I cannot find a refr.

      OK, I guess you meant Ursfjorden?
      No it is not. But you got the drift. The other "end" of Nordland.

        Then,the landscape we see could be in Troms?

      Just a try.
      At the border between Troms and Nordland.It could have been taken from Fjelldal (along the road 824) with Hinnoya in the background.

        You are right, this is taken from Fjelldal, which is in Nordland. Yes, you look across Tjeldsundet to Hinnoya. (The part in Troms)

        Picture taken by my youngest son who attend classes at the "University of the Arctic" branch in Fjelldal from time to time: http://www.uarctic.org/

        It is back to you again, Yves.

          A new one.
          What place is it?

            Somewhere with large tidal difference, which fits your part of France, but the houses and fishing boats doesn't look French.
            So we are in some other part of the world with big tides. Off the cuff I'll say this is either on the Atlantic coast of Canada, or we are in the southern part of South America.
            It does not look like the Argentine part of Patagonia, so I'll guess Chile?

              Good guess Ombugge.We actually are in Chile.

                Are we anywhere in the area of Concepción? Caleta Tumbes?

                  Not Concepcion.You have to move a bit South.

                    There are several possible places, but i don't manage to find a similar picture, so i just have to try some more: Lota?

                      No it is not Lota.You are still too much North.
                      As a clue, think about the "Chilian Hurtigruten".

                      Comment


                        Ah. Okay, that is more as a bit South in European scales. 500km is a lot. But your clue did lead me to the right place, i think.
                        It should be the beach of Isla Tenglo, just face to face to Puerto Montt.

                        Correct?

                          Spot on Ralf.
                          And for a Chilian Hurtigruten feeling,look at that:

                            I have a problem of translation with the word "subdued".Do you mean "sad"?

                            No, in this context, I mean reduced visual impact. Norway's places can render one speechless; most of Patagonia, with exceptions like the Darwin Cordillera and Cuernos de Paine, is rather ho-hum and in a deep rain shadow.
                            Nevertheless the lomo (beef) Argentina prides itself on has to be the world's best beef.
