    Re: What place is this?

    Of course it is!!! It's the MIL Mi-8 standing near the parkinglot close to road K310 there. Congratulations, 'PoloUK'

      Been at a meeting all evening, come home and find it all solved. That was marvellous, Mark, well done.

        We just need Ralf to confirm - to be fair, one helicopter looks a lot like another, and we're basically doing this by the fence and oil drum!!

        Mr S thinks it's right though, so that's encouraging.
        Cheers,

        Mark.

          Re: What place is this?

          Well spotted, Mark! That is correct. The Oil drum here was the final clue, the picture you found is older than mine and was taken in winter so it was not easy to recognize.

          Over to you again!

            OK then. Now for something a little different then. No planes or trains.

            Cheers,

              Re: What place is this?

              My first thought was "Holland" because of the tall ship in the background, that reminded me at Batavia shipsyard.
              http://www.bataviawerf.nl/startpage.html

              But i thought i might find it better by the statues.
              I searched through hundreds of pictures of metal harbour monuments, without any result.

              So i returned to the ship. A picture search through "tall ship replicas" leaded me to "The Matthew" of Bristol.
              http://www.matthew.co.uk/

              But searching through Bristol gave me no result regarding the monument. O.K., in which harbours did "The Matthew" stop for a visit?
              Typing ""the matthew" harbour" made Bristol, Lark and Cardiff appear.
              So two traces to follow:
              http://www.oocities.org/terreneuvien/matthew.htm
              http://www.cardiff-festival.com/harbfest_e.htm

              Typing "cardiff harbour monument" and picture search showed me this:
              http://www.flickr.com/photos/28301424@N04/6085119039

              The statues are called "People like us" and the place is Cardiff Bay. A nice song can be found here:
              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgzL3...layer_embedded

              The monument shows up at 1.20...

                Re: What place is this?

                Well done again Ralf!!

                According to the Mermaid Quay website:

                'Conceived and produced by Welsh artist John Clinch, this bronze sculpture celebrates the people of Cardiff Bay. Clinch comments 'the woman reflects the diverse cultural and ethnic mix of the docks and, in his boots and overalls, the man is a reminder of the once world-famous, busy port. The dog is for children to enjoy'.

                I put in something a little more arty and UK-based in the hope that it would be one that Kiki or Ivy got to first - I failed!!

                I look forward to your next challenge.
                Cheers,

                Mark.

                  Then. A picture which is not mine, so credit will be given after it is solved:

                      Re: What place is this?

                      First thought: Impossible, but then:

                      '~#§$%

                      I did the general "erase of picture informations" and did not check cross!!
                      So the solution was still written there.

                      Darn. I was almost sure, you wouldn't have been able to find it with the "similar picture search"!!

                      So where to go now??? I have to think about it...

                      Tried already something, but again it was easy to find. Now i have a challenge!!

                        Actually it was just the language. The sign could either be Danish or Norwegian, so googled Danish Castles - and it was sixth on the list!!

                          These "workers" - the coffee breaks to recover from the exhaustion of what few moments of real work they do seem to get longer and longer. Busy retired folk don't stand a chance.
                          If I wasn't so tired after fixing my holiday hotel and flight I'd get up and stomp out!

                              Buttering me up gets you nowhere - except flat on your face, like a piece of dropped toast. Te-he.

                              Furthermore, your remark:

                              is quite uncalled for, young man. Condescending little so-and-so, isn't he? Arty, yes, but why UK based? Look at where Kiki and I have been. Read my outback thread and see if I'm only good for UK based arty stuff.
                              As I believe I said only recently - wotchit.
