            No, not Norway.
            It looks not too different from the Sunnmorsalpene I see almost every day. (When not obscured by rain or snow.
            BTW they got a fresh new coat of snow today. (More expected tomorrow)

            Yes Himalaya. Not Mt. Everest, but well known.

          my thought went to K2,but didn't find a comparing image

            That is probably because it is not K2.

          OK, I'll go for Kanchenjunga.

            I'm afraid not, but looks very much the same,
            You are too far east.

          I have found the mountain, more or less the same view, but cannot yet name it. See http://7art-screensavers.com/screens...nly-union2.jpg

          Annapurna? I looked there first but dismissed it.

          Yes Annapurna I it is. This picture was taken by our oldest son when he was trekking in Nepal some two years ago.
          A bit more about the Annapurna trekking route, which is very popular: http://www.nepaltraveldoor.com/annap...g-in-nepal.php

          Your earlier suggestion of Kanchenjunga was interesting. It is in a far less known and visited part of Nepal, right on the boarder with Sikkim/India: http://www.himalayanwonders.com/blog...pal-india.html

          Back to you again Ivy.

            Yes, I remembered your son having gone trekking there and assumed it was one of his photos.

          Well? where is this?

            Both of them are twin towns with Victoria in BritIsh Columbia and the distances seem to be correct.But it could be an Ivy's trick!

              Well, if you ask Google, 'where is 9119km from Suzhou and 11417km from Napier' it gives you this link ...

              http://www.waymarking.com/waymarks/W...olumbia_Canada

              So I'm guessing it's the Centennial Square, Victoria, BC, Canada.

                Well !!! Google is just too efficient. I didn't think to test it out that way before posting. There I was, imagining you all scratching your heads, reaching for the atlas and grabbing ruler and compass to draw pretty circle patterns all over the globe. But seriously, I am constantly amazed when searching for something and doubtfully putting in some vague collection of keywords, only to find long lists of possibles appearing instantly.
                Judging by the position of your posts and the Latest Activity list then Yves is the winner, probably by minutes, but it was so close.
                But it could be an Ivy's trick!
                ME??? Trick you??? Would I ??? (Do I hear yells of "yes, yesssssssss, every time"?
                Right Yves, back to you.
