I'll take a wild guess: Oban, Stewart Island, New Zealand.

And if we haven't? :-)

Well, you can do what I did with the last image. I had never actually seen this building, although I had been to Tofino, so I worked with the clues and Google! I think the idea is to create a sequence of clues and replies that will eventually get to the spot. No fun if someone can say immediately "it was (wherever)". ;-)a

New Zealand ?

YES! Now, start to narrow it down.

Wonderful idea, but you are very cold! :-)

I think you missed the point - I was joking! I also think that you will find that some of us are very old hands at this game and know exactly what is required to identify a WAIN - as I say, my comment was a joke.

Perhaps we all need to use more smileys! I was not preaching to you! hence the smiley I actually put there  :p

It's not that serious an exercise - as far as I know... :rolleyes:

This is a very specific place. If you have been there you will recognize it!

I haven't been there specifically, but at one stage I was in the Sea Cadets (giggles - can you picture it? :lol: ) and we used to go to camp about 5km away.


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:

Hi Tom - It's good to see you back! I hope it wasn't something bad that caused your absence and that all is well with you.

Looks a bit like Victor Harbour in South Australia :) But as it is in New Zealand it may be Cornwallis??

Absolutely, it IS an island

It IS in New Zealand.

This island is nowhere near Stewart Island / Rakiura.

Obviously, it is a very popular tourist spot...
